Sharing updates over local networks.... Does it work?

Hi all

I've got 4 computers, all running W10x64, all on the same network, all in the same homegroup, and all set to receive updates from PCs on local networks, but all of them are still only using the MS update server.

Not an issue for most people, but my broadband runs at about 1.5mb, so shared updates would be a real bonus if they worked.

Is there something I'm missing somewhere that's stopping them from sharing, or does it just not work at all?

Cheers

Only Windows 10 computers and devices can connect to each other and get updates not only from Microsoft’s dedicated servers, but also from other Windows 10 devices that have already downloaded parts of the updates.

I'm sorry, but which part of my original post didn't you read?

They're all W10x64. One of them is even 100% up to date, but the others aren't sharing the updates.

Sorry i was tired when i had a look at your post any how no harm done.

If the Windows Update agent can’t talk to the Delivery Optimization service (due to firewall or proxy configurations), or if there are no peers able to provide the content, it will then go ahead and grab the content from the WSUS server.
