You can force the windows update client to look for updates with this command from the command line:
wuauclt /detectnow

Are the workstations already listed in the WSUS console?

If they're not in the WSUS console make sure you have a group policy deployed where they point to the WSUS server (Computer Configuation->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Windows Update ... Set intranet update service, target group name, etc)
