Update offline

asked 2024-04-12 11:40:44 +0000


We use Wireshark on many of our Automation Network computers. However, due to security reasons, all these devices are offline and therefore cannot update automatically?

Is there a way to configure the update path to an internal network drive instead of to the Internet.

This way we could download the latest update (with a script automatically??) on one server which is connected to the Internet and get the updates from that server. Similar to Windows WSUS and McAfee ePO updates.\

Ps: If this is not the case; how can I create a feature request?

Can't you manage updates through whatever other automation solution you have, e.g. for OS updates?

Update path is set in ui/software_update.c:

    switch (chan) {
            chan_name = "development";
            chan_name = "stable";

There doesn't seem to be a current issue to add a "local server" path so please open an enhancement request.
