Unable to register server

I am having trouble registering a server. On step 1 of 4, whenever I enter the name of a server (or IP address) and try to add it (this is a remote server that is not on my local LAN and does not show up in the list), it just blanks out the server name without adding the server. The documentation is very sparse and does not do an adequate job of telling me what it expects me to enter: should I enter a NetBIOS name, the IP address, the FQDN. Also, having the name just disappear with no message telling me the problem or how to correct it results in me wanting to dump this product and go find something else that is a little better documented. What should be a five minute process is turning into huge time waster.
