Are there any software firewalls installed on the laptop, other than the Windows firewall, such as Symantec or McAfee security suites? They can block some functions.

Yes, Symantec and Proventia and I disabled them both and I still get the same message.

Symantec in some cases is known to not be completely disabled unless uninstalled. The following is a list of ports required for Windows home server. I wonder if one or more of the ports required for back up is causing a problem:
TCP      80, 443      Standard Web site
TCP      55000, 56000       internal (subnet only) Web site for Windows Home Server Web services
TCP      1138       Transport
TCP      8912      Backup and beacon
UDP      8912      Backup and beacon
TCP       2869      UPnP (Universal Plug and Play)
UDP       1900      UPnP
TCP       3389      Remote desktop
TCP      4125      Remote access (when enabled)
TCP      139, 445      File and print sharing
UDP      137, 138       File and print sharing
UDP       10284, 10283, 10282, 10281, 10280, 10243       Media connection
