Sus Server issues with Clients

Hello, I have a Sus Server set up as it should be, according to the basic instructions on SUSSERVER.COM. Now when my clients connect to the windows update, they get either a generic "under construction page" or they get the HTM file provided on the site (once I placed it in wwwroot) that only has a brief blurb about the SUS server and a link to SUSAdmin page. Aren't the clients suppossed to get a windows update style webpage, as if they went to the site?

What am I missing.

Thx, Chris

No, they won't get the web interface like you see on Microsoft.  This is all handled by the Automatic Updates service instead.

You either need to do this through Group Policy (WUAU.ADM template) or through the registry.

Thanks much! I have seen these settings before and an office mate had said that these registry changes are on the server? Do these registry settings need to be set on the server or the client?

Thanks again, Chris
