SBS 2008 - Cant connect client computers, seems like IIS is not working.

Hello Experts;

Today I tried connecting a brand new Windows 7 Pro workstation to a SBS 2008 setup that is barely a month old; The Server has already had two Win 7 Pro machines connected to it, so it has all the necessary updates to make that work properly.

I have checked for all the obvious problems with connecting workstations, all is exactly as it should be as far as I can tell.

Trying to browse to http;//connect does not work, the page is never displayed. Running the IE connection diagnostic says that the server is there but is not accepting connection requests.

I also cannot browse to the server in any other web based capacity either, which makes me think something has gone arwy with IIS or similar, causing none of the web functionality to work.

Hoping an expert can point me in the direction of a solution!
