Can you try telnetting to the server on port 80 and 443. 
Telnet www.yourclientserver.com 80.

Try nmap or any other syn port scanner to port 80 and 443 only.
nmap -P0 -sS -p 80, 443 www.yourclientserver.com

You should get a reply (syn/ack) from the server for both of the above
commands if the ports are open. 

In nessus vulnerability scan try giving the following settings

1) Scan only user specified range (Give common ports used by IIS and
2) Change "checks_read_timeout = " value in nessusd.conf or .nessusrc to
15 seconds (This will help if you are using a slow network link)

 almost everyone who replied pointed towards icmp. We have tried running
test with icmp disabled. We still do not get a reply on those ports.

Have you carefully looked at some of the buried down setting under your
scanners.  It might simply be that it is expecting a reply from a ping
request before doing the scanning.

We are doing a pen test for a client and have run into a interesting 
situation. The client has a server running IIS and Exchange we can
get to
through a browser but when we try to run Nessus or Eeye Retina
neither product can find the server. The client is not running any
system has a simple firewall. A port scan revels no open port though
is open since the server is serving pages.
