I have a 2003 SBS R2 server.  When I login to the Remote Web Workplace and click on "Download Connection Manager", after the "strong password" warning the web page tries to change/refresh and I receive an "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error.  Tha balance of the site seems to be working OK.  Any ideas?

Hello Doctorpc1,

Did you untick the 'I'm using a public or shared computer'.
Is the RWW part itself working? Can you take over a pc?
Did you install the ActiveX part?

Hi suppsaws,

"Public or shared computer" is unchecked, RWW is working OK and I can connect to numerous desktop's without any problems.  I don't recall an ActiveX component - I'd normally expect to see that as a bar at the top of windows with IE7 which I'd click on to install.  If that happened it would have been installed.
I saw two possibilities on line today - the first had to do with a file list somewhere on the server that controled exactly what file extensions could be transferred into and out of the WWS, the second had to do with a necessary port that must be open on the firewall to allow files to be sent out.  Any thoughts?

I had the exact problem as described in the orginal post.  My fix included making sure the ASP.NET version was set to 1.1.4322 in IIS.
