Attempting to connect to an upstream server in WSUS Server Configuration Wizard but when I start the connection it never actually connects. I'm downloading update information from wsus.perepsvcs.com. Inbound rules on firewall is allowing port 8530 and 8531. The forwarder on the DC is setup properly. I can ping wsus.perepsvcs.com.
