Windows 2003 SBS Remote Web Workplace

Hi all, I'm having an issue with Remote Web Workplace and I've beat my head against the wall as long as I can. I've setup 10-15 of these but can't get this one to work. Here is what I have done already.
1. Server is setup and running for 6 months now.
2. Customer wanted to add Remote Web Workplace.
3. Ran the Internet and Email configuration Wizard.
4. Allow Access to: OWA, RWW and Outlook via Internet.
5. Created new web server certificate and added the dyndns name I created for it.
6. Saved the configuration.
7. firewall enabled the dyndns name - can ping it.
8. Forwarded ports 80 and 443 to server.
9. Opened port 4125 to server.

What am I missing. I usually set this up on the initial install and this is the first time to do it after the install. I can access all of these options internally.

Are all the other websites liek OWA available for the users?

All the websites are avaliable internal but nothing external.
May be the firewall
can you disable it and do a test?

if you still can't remote when the firewall is disabled then setup NAT for port 23 or 25 and check if you can get through with that.

I'm betting it;s the firewall some rule's messing you up.

I've got it setup exactly like 5-6 other installs, same hardware and everything. I did however change it on the firewall from a port forward to a NAT and still the same thing.
I'm calling the dsl modem provider to see if they are blocking any ports in the modem.

I did however use to access the the remote admin of the firewall on port 433 so I know that port is open on the modem.

Looks like they are blocking ports, going on-site today since the provider can not tell me until I help them out with a few things. Will update when I return.

Modem was blocking the ports.
