2012 Essentials connection issues

I'm having problems with the Windows Server Essentials 2012 (NOT R2) connector software.  I've been on a bunch of web sites and still am unable to resolve them.  

 

To Start:  I'm running WSE 2012 (non R2), a real plain install, none of my clients are on a domain (I added the key before installing the connector).  I can ping the server by name from all of the clients.

 

 All my clients were running fine.  I updated one client to Windows 10, no problem.  The second Windows 10 Pro client has the connector installed, but can't run backup (I do get the notifications).   I can ever remote the server and map drives to it.  Next, I added a completely new computer, and on that one, I download the connector, and get the "Cannot locate or identify your server" error.  Entering the or IP address here does nothing.  The other remaining clients work fine.

 

At this point, I'm thinking that maybe I did something to the server.  Somewhere in the interim, I installed SubVersion on the server.  I believe that it uses Apache, but even with that shut down, I am unable to install the connector.  

 

From my computerconnector.log file on the client:
