WSUS updates on Windows 2008 R2 fails with code 80244018

the server will pick-up the update list from the WSUS, but the download fails.

Cause: proxy server not being set.

run CMD as administrator
netsh winhttp show proxy
netsh winhttp set proxy <proxy settings:port>

you could start typing ‘netsh winhttp’ and then tab through for further options
