Home Server 2011 help! cant connect

I just installed a windows home server 2011 box on the network, all the other systems on my network are Win7 64 Ultimate, with Kaspersky KIS 2011 as the AV/FW.

The only thing I have done to the home server 2011 is all of the MS updates and added one user name (so I would be able to connect to it)


No matter what browser I use I always am getting a 404. Ive tried both firefox and IE9. the syntax i am using to try to connect is http://servername/connect

I should note that I have tried TWO installs at this point with no luck, any ideas?
