Remote access SBS2003 server

I'm trying to connect remotely to my server, and I get this error page come up on the screen

Server Error in '/Remote' Application.

Runtime Error
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

        <customErrors mode="Off"/>
I've found the config page and changed the errors mode to off but it doesn't make any difference. I can view the http://server/remote on the server but not on any of the client computers or externally.
Any ideas?

    Remote Web Workplace is not available until you publish the site by running the 'Configure E-mail and Internet Connection Wizard'

    After the site has been published,  RRAS will allow TCP port 80, 443, and also TCP port 4125 and 3389 connections to the server. If you are running your own firewall, and not using RRAS on your Small Biz Server, then you need to open those ports yourself.
