New computers not showing up in WSUS 3.0 SP1

I am deploying a new WSUS 3.0 Server in my domain.  I have set this up on SBS networks before and had no problem but this network is a bit larger.  I set up a new server to run WSUS and it is the only thing running on this server it is running on windows server 2003 standard.  It was joined to the domain as a member server not as a DC.  Below is my GPO but it lines up with everything I can find about setting this up.  Please any help.

This GPO is created and linked in the same OU as the default domain group policy.

also attached is a screen shot of the problem.

Maybe you can explain this a bit.  I am not running ISA Server.  I am working on WSUS 3.0.  I am having problems getting the computers to talk to the WSUS Server.  if this article relates to my problem with WSUS then maybe I am missing something.
Login to the PC that is not talking to WSUS, from command prompt, run gpresults.

It will give you a breakdown of all the group policies that gets applied to this PC. Check whether the WSUS policy is applied.

So it looks to me that the client is getting the GPO but for some reason it is still not working.

So any ideas or do you think I need to call Microsoft about this issue?
