remotely administering a Hyper-V 2008 R2 server

I performed a vanilla install of the free downloadable Hyper-V server R2, and enabled remote administration from the menus. I then installed the hyper-v manager from the server support tools for Win7. I know what the machines IP address is and can RDP into it and see the command prompt, but I cant connect to it via the hyper-v manager on my Win7 box. it acts as though it cant even see it. how do I connect to it?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

Its in workgroup mode at the moment. I tried to use the hvremote.wsf script to enable access but that didnt seem to do anything.
If your server and computer is both member of the same domain it should work.
