Force WUAUCLT /DETECTNOW on a remote computer

You could use the Batch_Remote script I posted yesterday to do this. But for times when you just need to manually kick off a request to a specific computer, using Sysinternals' PsExec...

psexec \\computername -s wuauclt.exe /detectnow

(yes, replace "computername" with an actual computer name. And don't forget to run it using an account that has admin rights on the remote computer).
