having an issue deplyoing captured images via WDS.

After the successfull capture I go to images and right click install images and add the newly captured image.

Then I inject my drivers into the default boot.wim image created when setting up WDS and F12 the reference machine into it. It waits a while then errors out with this error:

WdsClient: An error occurred while communicating with the Windows Dpeloyment Services service.. Please check to ensure the server is operational and necessary ports are open ,... firewall blah

Thanks in advance.
