Running Windows Update on a TMG Firewall Fails with Result Code 80072EE2

Recently I have encountered a problem with the Windows Update client on a server with Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010 installed. The Error is: Windows could not search for new updates with error code: 80072EE2.

When this occurs, Malware Inspection and Network Inspection Systems signature updates are received without issue.

To resolve this issue, open an elevated command prompt and enter the following command:

netsh winhttp set proxy localhost:8080

If you need to configure Windows Update on the TMG firewall to work with WSUS, read this blog post on the Forefront TMG product team blog.
