WSUS Server 2012: workstations not showing up in wsus console

Problem: Installed WSUS 2012 server on my network.  I created the necessary Group Policy Objects like what workstation group to below to, server name and when to check for updates.   After forcing a Group Policy update, I saw that the changes were in the workstations registry but I was still getting errors within windows update.   Also, they weren’t showing up within the WSUS  management console.

Solution:  Within group policy I had the server set at “http://wsusserver” which was wrong.  I needed to add port 8530 to both entries (http://wsusserver:8530) and I was in business.
