new install issues

I am building a test GW14r2 test system.

The server is built with SLES 14sp4. Everything "looks ok". I can see the PO and MTA are running. There are no errors in the log files.I have created 2 users for testing, the server is not connected to any directory. I can login to the HTTP consoles.

The issue is I can not login into the PO using a GW8 client from my PC. The client says "user not found". Also from my PC I can bring up the HTTP PO or MTA consoles. I can ping the server from my PC. My PC is windows 7.

What did I miss?
