Hi,
When I run the MMC for Update Services on Small Business Server 2008 it times out with :
Error: Connection Error

Please see the screenshots below.

The detailed error message is :

The WSUS administration console was unable to connect to the WSUS Server via the remote API.

Verify that the Update Services service, IIS and SQL are running on the server. If the problem persists, try restarting IIS, SQL, and the Update Services Service.

System.Net.WebException -- The operation has timed out
