Can you advise me on gas connections needed and how to fit connections

I think you are better off going to a Home Depot or Lowes or a plumbing supply house and ask for a gas stove hook-up kit. Then you ask all the questions you need, and ask questions over until you have a good knowledge of what to do and how to do it. There is a great safety factor here, so you need to be clear on how to do the hook up. You can take some pictures of the gas line and of the stove hook up pipe. If you do not have a gas line coming into the kitchen for the stove hook up, then get a qualified technician to install the gas feed.

When installing plumbing fixtures, you should always use either plumbers putty or Teflon tape around the threads where the two pieces come together. Without it, leaks are very possible. More often than not, you get leaks.

The tank leaks from the two bolts that hold tank to bowl. I replaced bolts and the rubber gasket (it has ears). Slow dripping from two bolts.

Under the heads of the two bolts (inside the tank) there should also be rubber washers. Remove the bolts, clean the bolt holes (in the tank) thoroughly (a nylon scouring pad works). If the rubber washer aren't new, replace them. If the bolts aren't new, replace them too. While you have it apart, thoroughly clean the surfaces where the large rubber gasket seats too, in case your leak is coming from there. If cleaning and new bolts and washers doesn't fix it, you might try some plumbers putty or bathtub silicon caulk (not on the large gasket). Coat the two rubber washer generously all over. Good luck.

I strongly suggest your gas man check the main line and connections as a tech should have been present during install AND testing. This is what they would look for. Test pressure at gas outlet. Test pilots (if any), Test ignition, and heating (noting the flame color and shape), Does unit come to temp as set on dial(s). Your seller/vendor may not be qualified the check these settings. Gas utility company HAS tools. worth it to have things checked properly like the main valve, regulator, safety shut off, leaking hose, fittings, clogged fittings (bits of plumbers putty or teflon tape, etc.)

Where is the gas input located on the back of a duets dryer. I need exact location to purchase correct length gas line prior to delivery tomorrow.

The standard dryer BTU rating is 22,000 btus. A 3/8 connector by 60 inch will be good enough to handle it. Just make sure that you get the size that matches you gas line valve flare fitting. The connector should hook directly up to the gas line valve without an adapter. The adapter will come with the connector and that goes on the pipe thread connection at the back of the dryer. You only need to use PTFE tape or sealent on the pipe thread at the back of the dryer. You do use any tape or sealent on the flare fittings.
