I cannot get clients to connect to a new server by using the http://connect
I can get on the internet and ping the server by name and ip
I can access the server's resources by \\servername and \\ip
What else do I need to troubleshoot.

If there are multiple NIC's on the PC such as wired and wireless you must disable all but one until domain joined
the client machine must point ONLY to the SBS for DNS. You cannot use an ISP or router even as an alternate
you shouldn't need to but it sometimes helps to add the internal DNS suffix under advanced TCP/IP properties on the DNS page
If WIN7 clients make sure you have all updates and rollups installed on the server, I think you requre RU3 or newer

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

No there was no other nic's. I was able to manually add the computer then I was able to go to //connect and added the computer/user the right way. Strange but I am going to start the next pc.

Sorry, you mentioned you added the server's DNS, so I assumed there was something else already there which would need to be removed. It must be only the server's IP under DNS.

DNS is the #1 cause of failure. Let us know how it goes on the others.

Try to add the domain suffix at the client NIC settings that could not connect to http://connect
