Hi there

I have installed WSUS 3.0 on my Windows 2003 Server SP2 but can't add any PCs to it.  Everything is set up in Group Policy correctly.

In the event log are the following errors;
The DSS Authentication Web Service is not working.
The SimpleAuth Web Service is not working.
The Client Web Service is not working.
The Server Synchronization Web Service is not working.
The SimpleAuth Web Service is not working.
No client computers have ever contacted the server.

And I can't access the self update service with a browser.

I have tried reinstalling to no avail.

WSUS is sychronising though and downloading updates.

cheers
