Try running this command from your terminal on the computers that CAN'T reach the server.
Then run the software update program.
Change the name example.server.com to your server's name.
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate CatalogURL http://example.server.com:8088/index-lion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog
I bet that this will fix the problem.
If you have tons of computers to run this command on, I suggest that you use a program like Apple Remote Desktop to deploy the command.

Hi Graham, I tried with this but I still receving the same message (but with the right server name): The server update software "serverX.ca" does not respond
I deleted the file com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist with the same result.

Oh... If you delete the com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist file then it defaults back to Apple's own servers.
After you deleted this, you still got an error? Or did it successfully check with Apple?
