Check points to narrow down the problem:
Follow the below steps on the backup server where you have installed patch manager:
1) From the command prompt, first try to ping the website www.arcserve.com and it will time out.
2) If you try to ping www.google.com it will complete the ping request.
3) If you open www.arcserve.com and www.google.com websites in Internet Explorer, they would open successfully. However, the ping request time out appears for www.arcserve.com from command prompt.
To resolve this problem, you need to add the below websites in the proxy server web link addon. It will give access to these sites via proxy configuration and also allow them to connect from patch manager.
Once you have added these links, now try to re-open the CA ARCserve Patch Manager and click on 'Check for update' button. It will now display all available published patches for the current release of CA ARCserve backup.
