Web interface to SBS 2003 says "You are not authorized to view the page" HTTP Error 403.6

Setup a new installation of Small Business Server 2003. The Web interface should let me do Outlook and setup remote network connection "ConnectComputer" but I get the HTTP Error 403.6.

How can I change the authorization?

You can change the Internet Explorer enhanced security through the "Add/Remove programs" ==> "Add/Remove Windows Componnets" screen. Either uncheck "Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration" or click "Details" and change it for either Administrators or just Users.

I am able to get to the main menu, and the help menu. It just is blocking me from getting to selected sub-menus. I think your suggestion points to the whole web site. I tried doing this and had no change. Should I restart IIS to see any change?

Why did you accept this solution!  This is not the problem at all.

Did you manually change the IP of the SBS2003 machine after running the internet connection setup wizard?

SBS2003 will only allow the connectcomputer dialog from computers on the same subnet as it.  If you change the IP manually throught tcp/ip properties, without re running the internet connection wizard that comes with sbs2003, computers that are on the same subnet will experience this message.

That's my theory at least.  I'm testing it this afternoon, and will update tonight.
