Remote Web Desktop Connection failure yet VPN and RDP works

I've got SBS 2003.

I can create a VPN to our network and RDP onto our servers.
I can use the https://ourserver.remote, login, and connect to the remote web workplace.  From here I can access the Outlook web access and view the emails fine.  If I click on connect to server desktops, I can see a list of the servers.  When I connect to a listed server I get a do you trust the computer you're connecting to dialog.  I say yes then after a while I get the infamous "cannot connect to remote desktop" message.
When I'm in the office and open IE and type servername/remote, and go through the above it does connect to a server using RDP.
I have customers who have their own web desktop connection configured who I can also access the RDP through the web no problem.  

It doesn't appear to be a client related issue so must be our SBS configuration but I have no idea what the problem could be.
Can anyone help?

make sure you have 4125 forwarded to the SBS box. SBS uses that to do the remote RDPs.

That appears to have done the trick.  Many thanks.
