Small Business Server 2008 Connect Computer Progam Problem

I have gone through the original article on this subject, but still the solution suggested in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957708 is not working for me.

I'm still using an SBS2003 and the new SBS2008 is running in test next to it in a different domain.

http://connect shows a website about Plesk.  Pinging CONNECT results in an internet address of 193.74.64.182.

If I adjust the hosts file with the new server's ip address and connect, I get to the proper SBS connect computer screen.  When running the install, however, it still comes with the error message:
Connect Computer Program - Error
An error occured while downloading the Connect Computer application. Please run this application again

This also happens when I run the launcher.exe from a usb stick..

I have tried with the firewall on the server turned off, pauzed the local escan internet security suite, but to no avail.

Any ideas anyone?
Cheers

Can you paste the full ipconfig /all to check your settings please?

Thanks Mark
But I have done it manually for now, which works, on this one workstation.
It is the first of a number of machines I need to do.
If I run into this issue with one of the next machines, I'll be sure to copy the ipconfig /all of that machine in here.
Thanks again.
