SUS reporting is hmmm.., lets say sub-par. To get -any- reporting you have
to install MS SQL server, and configure the IIS with some scripts you can
find on susserver.com

an easy way out is to parse the logs online.

Perhaps this link will help you: www.pdxconsulting.com/sus/

You can feed it the log files, and it will display human understandeble
error codes, with IP adress from the clients visible.

My logfiles are found in  winnt\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1\*

Good luck,
