I manage a Windows SBS 2011 Standard Server. Recently had to connect 3 Windows 8.1 machines....but I am not having any luck. I have followed everything I have read online. The updates are completely up-to-date on both the server and the machines. Reboots have been done across the board as well. When I try to access the "http://connect" site from the windows 8 machines, I just get a page cannot be displayed error. I have tried from Internet Explorer, both regular and with Admin Privileges, as well as Chrome, same problem with both. I've tried running the wizard from portable media...That just errorred out saying that the version of windows is not compatible. I have also tried disabling ipv6 on both server and client, no change either. What is the problem, or what am I missing?
** To further clarify, I am able to ping the server by name AND IP address as well. I can access shares on the server, but only by providing credentials for one of the users on the domain. **
