SBS RWW Server Desktop connection has stopped working

After the ADSL router for this client died and was replaced this problem began.

I remotely support a client who runs a single SBS 2003 server SP2
This server runs Exchange 2003 and Sharepoint 2.0
ISA Server 2004 SP3 is installed.
Server has a single NIC.
Until 2 months ago I could connect to the Server Desktop from my home. I'd login to RWW and then use the Server Desktop link from there. Now it doesn't work.
I get the message "The client coul;d not connect to the remote computer" "Remote connections might not be enabled ... etc"
I can monitor the connection attempt on the SBS box using ISA Server Monitoring.
It lists Initiated Connection and then Closed Connection a short while later. The extra information with the latter has an error FWX_E_ABORTIVE_SHUTDOWN 0x80074e21.
I've looked this up on isaserver.org, but the article there only suggests that the listener is not running. The listener is running becuase if I try this conmnection from a client on the same LAN as the server it works fine.

Chances are port 4125 have not been setup to forward following the replacement of the router.

Thanks. Don't know why I didn't double-check the settings before.
I had setup a service called RWW for UDP port 4125 and placed it in the forwarding table (on this router setting up a service and then adding to the forward ports table are two separate steps). I had also setup service RWW1 for TCP 4125, but had omitted to place that service in the forwarding table. Now it's in the forwarding table and I can get at my server desktop again.

Glad it was a simple solution, wish I'd asked earlier!
