Why do I get 403 forbidden when trying to access my WSUS site?

when trying to access the http://domain.com/selfupdate I get the following:

403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

It never asked for a login & I am the domain admin..

A couple of things that I have seen cause this:
1) should the URL be using httpS instead of http?
2) Do you have a default page set up (home.aspx, index.htm, etc)? If so, can you go directly to that page?
