I have setup a SBS 2003 server but when trying to access it outside the building with https://external ip/remote
I get a server error in /Remote Application (runtime error screen).

Is there anything i need to check or a guide to setting the remote access up any one can point me to?

For RWW to work properly, you need port 4125, 3389 and 443 forwarded to your sbs server through the firewall.
Did you complete the remote access wizard on the management console?

one important thing I forgot, did you update .NET on the server? Did the rww worked before?

Yes i have all the ports forwarded to the server. I have only joined the machines in the office to the domain. But no i didnt use the http:// way. I did it the old fashioned way via computer name.

What does it do different joining the machines this way?

If these are going to be remote users and never in the office do they still have to be joined to the domain? That may sound like a silly question but i have accessed another companies sbs remotely without being on there domain.
