Server 2016 WSUS

I've created a virtual Server 2016 WSUS instance. The GPO for the client computers is supposed to be set by the network engineer. I'm getting updates downloaded from Microsoft, but have yet to see any client computers connect. I've checked the default firewall ports, and TCP 8530 and 8531are allowed.

Any ideas out there?

Thanks in advance.

p.s. This is my first 2016 production server.

Don't assume the GPO is set. Verify that it is. You can't troubleshoot an issue if you haven't checked all the basics.

I'm working with my network guy, but he's pulled in several directions right now. Does he have to add the port number o the server url?

You can verify if a client is getting the correct Gp settings for wsus using a reg query

reg query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate.
