SBS 2011 Essentials Connector error message

Hi all,

I'm trying to connect a Windows 7 Pro machine to an SBS 2011 Essentials server.

When I type in: https://server1/connect, I get the following error message:

I seem to be getting this message with every computer I try to connect, so I'm assuming that the problem is with the Server. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

This is just the Essentials servers web page not furnishing a trusted cert to your stations browser.  It is just a warning that you can click through and run the setup.

Hi, when I try to click through, it goes to an 404 error page.

On the essentials server, have you stepped though the setup wizards?  Are the station and the server using the same source for DNS?  Are the DNS settings pointing to the ip of the server on both?

Are all the services running on the server that are marked automatic?  Are there any errors in the event viewer that seem relevant?

I believe so, but i'll double check.

I don't know if this matters, but if I double click on the Server icon from: Network - Other Devices (looks like white fridge), the connector install goes though just fine.
