Hi,
I have installed WSUS Server on a windows 2003 server and it is getting
update online without any error through proxy.
When I launch the WSUS Diagnostic tool, an error occurs. Here is the log:

I change the WSUS server port to 80. The diagnostic is OK...
Is there something special to do to make it work on port 8530?

I had this SAME issue/error message and struggled with it for 2 days.

I also was seeing a "self update is not working" error in the event log on the server hosting WSUS this would log to the application log every 6 hours.

After pouring over posts all over the internet I had verified, checked, and REchecked my permissions (anonymous, no SSL ect..) on the virtual directories, default website ect... I knew the issue wasnt that.

In my case it turned out to be that IIS had gotten its password for the anonymous account out of sync with what Windows had.

My fix was:
Obtain the IUSER password that the machine was using (google this, its an easy script to run to get the pw)

I then did a right click "my computer" - manage - local users and groups - local users - IUSR account - right clicked on it and "set password" -- i then pasted the password I had obtained from the script.

Next I went into IIS and manually set the password for the IUSR anonymous account on the the default website, the wsus site, and the self-update virtual directory.

Did an IISREST and tried the diagnostics again.
ALL CLEAN THIS TIME! I verified my event logs on the WSUS server and instead of an error entry saying "Self Update is not working" I got a "WSUS is working correctly" informational log entry. WOOHOO!

I post this in the hopes it will help someone out there in a similar situation.
Cheers. :thumb:

I too am running WSUS on 8530, with the default website in IIS using port 80 and the virtual directory to "self update" on the default site
