Windows update is being blocked from updating

Hi there Not sure but the wretched built in firewall on W10 seems to stop my Linux server accessing Windows shares even when the firewall is turned OFF.The Windows box can access the Linux shares so something is hosed up here again. To exclude driver updates on Windows 10, do the following: Once you disable the option your computer will no longer get driver updates through the Windows Update service.Keep in mind that preventing Windows 10 from installing driver updates can also have a negative effect, as outdated drivers can also cause issues in the long run.I run a very hardened system, I lock down all incoming connections and remove all outgoing but core networking on a new install.How can I get windows update to connect to the internet again?Personally I'd let all genuine Windows processes make outbound connections, Windows already has Ring Zero, it can do whatever it wants anyway.

It is the user's poor habits that gets them into trouble and causes an infected machine. Thanks arc1020, I'll play around now that I can monitor, hard to find my way around outside of a *NIX server.

If your firewall is blocking outbound connections, then the first thing you need to do is see everything that it's blocking.
