Q7280010: What protocol is used to monitor Windows Updates?

To monitor Windows Updates, ActiveXperts uses the Microsoft 'Windows Update Agent API'.

The Microsoft 'Windows Update Agent API' is a set of COM (Component Object Model) interfaces that allow developers to programmatically interact with the Windows Update service to manage the installation and configuration of updates on Windows systems.

Unfortunately, Windows Updates cannot be checked using WinRM (Windows Remote Management), the protocol recommended by ActiveXperts to check servers over HTTP(s).
