Server 2003 Remote Web Workspace connection issue
Posted on 2006-05-10
I setup a new 2003 Server this week and I am having an issue connecting to the Remote Web Workspace from a remote location. The Workspace is enabled in the Internet and Email connection wizard. Ports 80 and 443 are forwarded to the server.
If you go to the Default Website in the IIS manager and browse from the server itself, the Workspace allows connections to the server and to all the workstations on the domain.
When you try to access the Workspace remotely, the main default website loads and you can select the Remote Web Workspace option. When you choose the Workspace option, the page loads that lets you choose to connect to either servers or workstations. You can see the list of server and workstations that are on the domain.
The problem is that when you select a server or workstation and try to connect to it, it never connects. You get the error that the machine you are trying to connect to is either too busy to accept the connection or that remote services aren't enabled.
The remote desktop is enabled on all the machines. I know remote desktop works correctly because I can use the XP remote desktop connection to access the server remotely and then I can remote desktop again to the workstations.
Any ideas why remote desktop would allow connections to the machines, but Workspace will not?
All users are also members of the Remote Web Workspace users group.
Thanks in advance
