I've got a machine that doesn't have a direct connection to the internet. I use a socks proxy to connect to the internet:
% ssh -ND 8080 gateway-machine
And I've got Firefox, etc configured to use this proxy, so I can browse the internet as normal.
How can I configure Software Update to use this proxy (or some other method) so I can get updates to this machine?
I know I can set the software update url to a non-default value, so that might help, but I'm not sure how.
