Cannot access SBS website via the Internet!

Whenever I try to connect to my SBS via the Internet, I receive the following error message:

===============
You are not authorized to view this page
The Web server you are attempting to reach has a list of IP addresses that are not allowed to access the Web site, and the IP address of your browsing computer is on this list.

Please try the following:

    * Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.

HTTP Error 403.6 - Forbidden: IP address of the client has been rejected.
Internet Information Services (IIS)

Technical Information (for support personnel)

    * Go to Microsoft Product Support Services and perform a title search for the words HTTP and 403.
    * Open IIS Help, which is accessible in IIS Manager (inetmgr), and search for topics titled About Security, Limiting Access by IP Address, IP Address Access Restrictions, and About Custom Error Messages.
===============

My port forwarding on my router is obviously setup correctly, otherwise I wouldn't be getting this far. I'm having the same problem via HTTPS too.

By the way, is the SBS evaluation build any different from the full version? It's just my brother who also runs SBS for his business has the full version and has never had this problem!

There is no difference in the trial version.

The fix for your problem is described here:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306833

However, I wonder how this occurred.  Did you not run the Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard (CEICW)?  It's the "Connect to the Internet" link from Internet & Email in the Management Console.

Or, did you mess with the IIS settings themselves?

Because this would only happen under those two scenarios (or a glitchy install).

I had a feeling this was the cause, but I wanted to be sure, in which case I came here first. Anyhow, I've done method 1 and it's all working now.

Thanks Jeff! :)
