My domain contorller is my WSUS, it sees itself in the console.
I can go to a client and type in http://clover-server/selfupdate/ to the browser and it tries to download a cab file
I can ping my server,

Can anybody help me please?

    How are you telling the clients about the WSUS server? I use Group Policy to tell the PCs where their update server is.  This is found in Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update.  You want to put http://clover-server in both fields of the policy called "Specify intranet Microsoft update service location."   You also want to make sure that the Group Policy object is linked to an OU that has the PCs.

    I have update my clients by going in MMC and Specifying the intranet server and the STat server as http://clover-server. However i do not think i am clear on the last part about Linking the GP to an OU because i dont recognize the acronym OU (LOL)

    OU = Organizational Unit.  Are you modifying these settings in Group Policy on the domain controller or on the computers themselves?

    on the computers themselves

    Well then you do not need to worry about the OU part.  The reason you don't see the computers right away is that it takes a while for all the computers to start to show up in the WSUS console.  Try looking at it tomorrow and see if any of the computers are starting to show up in the console.
