CONFIGURE REMOTE WEB ACCESS for 2003 SERVER

Current situation:

win 2003 server supporting about 25 users
linksys broadband router for adsl internet connection
2 24 port 3com switches

Problem:

I want to connect to the remote web access by IE with the address of server.domain.com. When I try this I get http error
"HTTP Error 403.6 - Forbidden: IP address if the client has been rejected"

Whats strange is when I go to  server.domain.com/remote I get the remote login page which is what I want I just don't want to have to add the /remote to the server.domain.com.

Also would like to know why I get the HTTP error when trying to gain access at server.domain.com and not at server.domain.com/remote.

If anybody can help I would appreciate it big time.

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 http://server.domain.com 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 "server.domain.com" 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.
