Why won't Crystal Reports 2016 connect to crystal server

I am in the process of evaluating Crystal Server and Crystal Reports 2016. I have downloaded both current versions and have Crystal Server up and running. The problem I am having is when I try to connect to the Crystal Server installation from within the desktop version so that I can upload a report, I am getting an "Internal error" message.

The server is version, and the desktop client is version

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this?
