Remote Web Workplace on Standard Server

Is there any way to export the settings in IIS of Remote Web Workplace and then import them into a standard server?  I have a client that has been using RWW, but is growing out of the SBS size limits and I am looking at installing a couple of new servers to replace the SBS.  The problem is that they like the RWW connection and I was wanting to get it working on the new server running standard server.

    No, there's no way of running RWW on a standard server.  If they are getting literally too big for SBS, the only alternative is to go to a full Terminal server installation.  For a company that is growing beyond the 75-user limit, Terminal Server is a much more secure and economic solution anyway, unless they just have a few users connecting remotely.  If they are getting too big in terms of network load and need for additional services, but still below the 75-user SBS licensing limit, you could keep the SBS server and just add additional standard servers to the network to provide the additional services you need.

    So there is no way to setup any kind of IIS config to allow RWW?

    RWW is built into the SBS operating system in such a way that it is virtually impossible to duplicate it in a standard server environment, as far as I know or have ever heard.  You can allow multiple remote desktop connections directly to various workstations in the company, but that can be a configuration nightmare as well as a huge security hole.
