Firewall access rules for updates

    I wonder if anyone knows the answer here, I have searched a bit and couldn't come up with anything.

    I have a few esx4 hosts controlled by vcenter and need to find out the ip address/range or url that the vcenter updater or standalone update manager connects to vmware in order to obtain updates. I could just run wireshark on the host if I can't find the answer but thought I would ask first.

    Issue is I have a non stateful acl/firewall in front of vcenter and need the vmware update ip/url so I can allow it to access the cluster, otherwise I can't connect to vmware hosted updates without disabling the acl set in the router.

    Many thanks for your time.
