0x8184004b" and "Connecting to pnwrr.com:53 (TCP)... err=0x01840000 OK SND update request. Err=0x01840000 RCV server response. err=0x01840000 Security context successfully established using NTLM SND update request. Err=0x01840000 RCV server response. err=0x01840000"

You can set the zone to allow "Nonsecure and secure" updates.. turns out the protocol isn't the same as the windows 2003 secure update protocol it seems.

Apparently, the client machine has to be part of the server AD domain for "secured" update to be accepted by the server.
To bypass this limitation, I built a special utility/tool that acts like a "dns update proxy".
You install it on the server (so it's part of the AD), and it listens for update on a special port (54 by default). The, it passes the requests to the DNS server on port 53 and send back the result to the DirectUpdate client.

This tool (called DUProxy.exe) is still in beta stage.
If you are interested in beta-testing, let me know and I'll send it wirth pleasure.

Waiting for your feedbacks
