Troubleshooting WSUS

I was getting errors when trying to update a new Windows Server 2008 computer in our empty forest root domain.  We don't use resources very often and from time to time setting up connections doesn't work very easily.

I was getting Windows Update Error Code:  80244021

To troubleshoot, I went to http://<servername>/selfupdate/wuident.cab to see if I could connect to a file.  When the security trust page came up I quickly realized that I needed to add the WSUS server as a trusted site.
