My job is switching to Mac from Windows. How does it work with Updates for multiple apple workstations both for Apple and Microsoft Office Updates? Do you need to setup a special server that will connect to Apple and then another server that will connect to Microsoft for updates? Or does one Mac server handle both?

thanks,

G'day and welcome to the forums.

No. When you install Office it comes with an upater that will check automatically each week, or you can do this manually by hitting the Check for Updates button in the Help Window.

You computer then connects to the MS Mac site, Mactopia, and downloads from there. Here is a list of what is available from microsoft:-

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Thanks for the reminder. There's actually an update for 2004 that I have not downloaded!

Is it possible to set up a centralized server that would get all updates from Mac and that would distribute only selected updates to other Macs?
