Non-domain joined laptop & EPS installation - Failed to send register message to the server

We have half a dozen laptops that are not on the domain that we'd like to protect with EPS Client.

I've created a Virtual Group on the Endpoint Server for Non Domain Joined Laptops & downloaded the package from the rule that associates the group.

Installing on the Win 10 Home laptop is successful (running via CMD msiexec /i "DRIVE:\path_to_EPS.msi_file\EPS.msi" /l*v C:\EPS_install.log) but I've got the error message "Endpoint Security Client failed to send register message to the server. Contact your administrator".

As the laptop is not on the domain it won't see the EPS server the same way all previously deployed clients have. Is there a way to point this non joined laptop to our server's external IP - or is there another way to get the laptop talking to the server?

Thanks in advanced!

Assuming you're deploying the EPS.msi that SmartEndpoint generated, it should have the correct IP put in the file automatically.
Can the clients reach the Endpoint Management Server on ports 80/443?

Can you confirm the client can reach the Endpoint Management Server on ports 80/443 as I mentioned previously?
You may also want to engage with the TAC on this.
