Error: Connect to SSIS Service on machine “” failed:

On a new instalaltion of SQL Server 2008, running on Windows Server 2008, l cannot connect to SSIS from SSMS (Sql server management console) 2008 running on a client workstation. I can connect from the local server end.
I tried adding the users Group to the permissions option on Component Services/MsdtsServer100 as suggested by many sites since this problem is common also in SSIS/Sql Server 2005. This didnt work.
Solution was to add the user group to the Windows Server Distributed COM Users group.
