hi there
am new using WPP. i want to install it upon a wsus server up and running (same machine) and i get the error message " connection failed unable to connect to the remote server". though i can connect to my WSUS when the option "connect to local server" is not checked it seemed impossible to connect when the latest option is checked.

i read some discussions on the wpp forum but i couldn't discern how to troubleshout thie issue.


any guidances are more than welcome

ps: am running a wsus on 2012R2 with an sql express edition installed instead of using the embedded natif database of wsus.
my option.xml file setting are as follow:

<WsusPackagePublisher>
<Server>
<Name>P-MSWSUSEX</Name>
<IsLocal>True</IsLocal>
<Port>80</Port>
<UseSSL>False</UseSSL>
<IgnoreCertErrors>False</IgnoreCertErrors>
<DeadLineDaysSpan>0</DeadLineDaysSpan>
<DeadLineHour>0</DeadLineHour>
<DeadLineMinute>0</DeadLineMinute>
<VisibleInWsusConsole>Never</VisibleInWsusConsole>
</Server>
</WsusPackagePublisher>
