Windows Software Update Services doesn't require the end-user to be part
of a domain to get updates. You just need to define the WSUS server as
the source for updates by changing a few registry entries and make sure
the server is available via HTTP or HTTPS to your customers. You can
read more at Microsoft's site.

Also, WSUS is free to run on any Windows server.

I'm having a really hard time with the Windos updates. Is there any
or way around the cache those updates? I know there are for enterprises,

but are there for ISPs?
