How can I set up SUS to provide updates without opening firewalls?

I want to use SUS to provide updates to my internal network without having to open my firewalls. What's the best way to set up an internal update server with a minimum of open access?
The only firewall access you will need is to Microsoft's Windows Update Web site, where the updates for SUS are downloaded. You can verify that you have the proper access by testing the Windows Update Web site on one of your client computers.
