    Its been years since I setup our wsus server but a few things you can explore:

    I would check that your workstations all have different SID's if you have imaged them.
    Check your firewall.

    Try running these on a workstation:

    Try this 1st
    Update now:
    wuauclt.exe /detectnow

    only try this if above doesnt work
    Update now / reset authorization:
    wuauclt.exe /updatenow /resetauthorization

    I think once I had to update online from windowsupdate before it would talk to the wsus server because the windows updater on the workstation was out of date.

    The one that always get me is the server location should be http://servername (forward slash) and not the usual http:\\servername ( Backslash)

    Also if its not the default intranet page on that server it will need a different port specified i.e. http://servname: port
