I've just set up a new WSUS server. This morning, I logged into the server with our Group Policy Manager on it to create a new GP to reflect the WSUS change; doing this gave me the "Network Location Cannot be Found" error. I'm pretty green with this stuff and have been learning as a go; have found no solution online yet.

How did you set the IIS server ports up? Wsus install should ahve already done all this.

First thing to do is check to see if the GPo is applying, goto Run and type rsop.msc and navigate to the ComputerConfig/Admin blah blah and see if your setting is being applied.

Also in the registry the value is set to (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate) make sure the server http:// someserver:portnumber  are there, if it isnt and the old one remains then delete the registry key and use "gpupdate /target:computer"  in run
