    I would assume that if you look in the server's IIS site you'll find that there is a fodler named "remote" where the remote acccess file reside. So, when you go to your going to the root of the default website and no remote connection files are there and the page errors. When you add th /remote on the end there is in fact a page there to load up. It just means that the header record for "" does not point directly to a site having the /remote contents, therefore you have to specify it.

    I speak of this from IIS experience with websites, not the Remote web access to 2003 server.
