How do I get my WSUS server to detect the client machines on my network?

I recently installed WSUS 3.0 on a Windows 2003 R2 SP2 Server. I've created an OU in AD with the WSUS GPO attached to it and dropped 3 computers into this OU for testing. After several hours and, the computers haven't shown up in WSUS. I've tried a couple of commands from various blogs and TechNet articles, but nothing seems to work. Please help.

i'm assuming you have correctly configured your WSUS GPO...have you tried restarting these boxes so the GPO policy will kick to these pcs?

have you run gpupdate /force on the machines followed by wuauclt /detectnow?

How have you configured the WSUS address in the GPO? http://Server?? what port did you install WSUS on?
