ConnectComputer Failure Problem
Posted on 2006-06-22
I'm trying to add a new PC to my SBS box. It's a clean install of XP Pro. So I typed the usual servername/connectcomputer and got a http 400 error code. I can ping "servername" with no problem. I also tried via the card on the LAN side 192.168.16.2/connectcomputer which also fails but the WAN card 192.168.2.2/connectcomputer will start the wizard and it asked me to allow activex to insatll and I said OK, now though if I click connect to the network now from that IP, I get a message on the screen that says "run the wizard to complete networking setup". I think this may have something to do with the fact that I just set up WSUS but I can't figure it out.
Should Connect now only be run on the Lan using the servername/connectcomputer or the 192.168.16.2/connectcomputer or can it be run from 192.168.2.2/connectcomputer and have the same result?
My main question though is, why can't I get it to run?
I am logged into the client PC as the local administrator although the password of that local admin does not match the password of an admin on the server.
Also, I am able to access servername:8530/wsusAdmin from that client PC (asks for user and pass of course.)
