Specifics
Microsoft Small Business Server
Sharepoint Services 3.0

I can access companyweb/ on the local intranet. To connect from outside the local intranet my URL has to be specific http://companyweb/default.aspx.  http://companyweb/ prompts for user name and password but then page not found.

I have done extensive searches on this one only finding some help mentioning something to do with multiple frameworks of ASP.net.  The server does have multiple frameworks installed.

I have tried this fix: http://www.irishdev.com/blogs/jbrennan/archive/2005/10/27/1027.aspx but results for me are "you are not authorized to use this page"

you mentioned sharepoint services 3.0, which i'm assuming is wss 3.0

in wss 3.0, if you have multiple addresses that resolve to a single web application, you have to re-extend that application in Central Admin to create another "zone".

also, you might consider that this is a possible DNS issue.  internally, DNS knows companyweb should resolve to companyweb/default.aspx...
externally, you would have to specify it with a pointer... so that when a user navigates to companyweb, the DNS translates that to companyweb/default.aspx
