Routing and remote access is for setting up VPN.   If you need to allow ports into the network you need to configure your firewall to do this or ISA if you have that installed on the SBS server.

Are these programs that you're allowing through coming from inside the network or from a remote location?  If they are remote I would make sure to only allow their specific Public IP address into your network.

These programs are all on the internal network I imagine.  So you don't need to open any ports for them.  If the programs are going to the Public net most firewalls will allow all communications outbound.  If you are having trouble getting these programs to talk with other PCs on the network then those PCs probably have a software based firewall installed.  You will need to disable the firewall or open specific ports on the firewall for each PC .

Ue the Routing and Remote Access feature to configure your VPN.

ISA is a a "firewall" feature that comes with SBS Premium Edition.  For most small businesses ISA server is not necessary.  A standard router/firewall will do everything you need.  Here's a link to a Microsoft site that will give you more information than you ever wanted to know.
