WSUS 3.0 SP1 Update for Window 7

I could connect the Window 7 to the WSUS 3.0 SP1 server. Telnet to port 8530 on Window 7 to WSUS seems fine. In WSUS console, it could see the workstation but it reports with a "red cross" icon saying that "This computer has not reported status".

I have also run the
   Run WUAUCLT /A /RESETAUTHORIZATION
    Run WUAUCLT /DETECTNOW
but it doesn't help anything. Inaddition, I have already disabled Symantec Endpoint protection but no hope.

Any advise ?

Is any machine responding properly to WSUS. Does your GPO have the right port mentioned?

Running netstat -an on the Window 7, there is a connection to our WSUS server. Try to telnet to the server with port 8530 (default port for WSUS) & 8014 (I believe that's the dynamic port after negotiation), it works fine.

Any further advise ?

Is WSUS SP2 is a requirement to patch Window 7 ?

We have few Window 2008 R2 server but the deployment works fine with current WSUS.

Only the new introduced Window 7 doesn't work.
