I have read plenty of articles concerning RPC server problems and non of them seem to relate to this issue.  I have been trying to set up my CM 2012 server to deploy software updates and I am to the point of just needing to filter the updates, download
and deploy them.  When I try to download the updates from the internet, I get an RPC server unavailable error and it closes.  I have checked the RPC service and all of its dependencies, verified that it is looking for a correct microsoft update service
point, disabled my firewall and opened all ports on the firewall just to verify that it wasn't that, and ping tested a few other external sites (aka: Newegg.com/google.com) to see if I could get replies (which I did).
Not really sure where to go from this point.  Anyone else encounter this before or know how one might fix it?

Nbsccm01 is also our migration server that is no longer in service, is there anyway to disconnect this server permanently?
Thanks!
