WSUS 4 connecting to WSUS 3.0 upstream: http error occurred

Our WSUS configuration was completely shot, so I wiped and rebuilt. Our primary server at HQ is 2008 R2, and the downstream server is 2012. The primary server has been up and running for more than a week, but I can't get the downstream to connect. When I click Start Connecting, it takes about 30 seconds and then reports "An HTTP error occurred." Here's what I get when I click details:

WebException: Unable to connect ot the remote server ---> System.Net.Scokets.SocketException: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond <ip address>:8530

Check the port number of the 2008 R2 server WSUS in the IIS Manager.   I do believe it's port 80 by default if not running SSL.

See attached JPG from my 2012R2 SUS  IIS control panel.    I realize it's not 2008R2, but that's what I've got now in my lab.

Okay, so I didn't do one basic piece of troubleshooting that I should have done: when I go to http://servername on my PC (on site with the upstream) the IIS7 splash loads. When I try to load the same page in IE on the downstream server, it doesn't work.

Is there a setting in IIS I need to tweak, or should I be talking to the network guys at the remote location to get them to check out a connectivity problem?

The remote site connects via VPN and is in a different subnet than the upstream server, if that matters. But the downstream can ping the upstream.

If you've got routing setup, the subnets don't matter.  

Do you have any other machines in the downstream subnet that can try to reach http://servername?

from your PC, can you reach http://downstreamservername and get the IIS splash?

Found the problem. The remote location's Exinda was blocking traffic from our WSUS problem due to a broadcast storm by that server years ago. The old block was removed and the system synchronized properly.
