How to configure firewall for Remote Web Workplace

I've recently moved a (new) client's server (and network) from one building to another. During the process, I needed to replace the Sonicwall Firewall (due to damage). Now I am in the position of trying to configure the new firewall to match the old.
Most functions are working, Internet, email, VPN tunneling. However the users are now reporting that the Remote Web Workspace is no longer functioning. Since all server functions came back with out error, I can only assume there is some further config needed in the Firewall.
Instructions for accessing the site entail, using IE and the appropriate HttpS URL, continue past the security certificate notification, and logon. Now - inside the network, users can get to the security certificate notification, then 'This page cannot be displayed' standard IE error. Outside the network, they cannot even get to the certificate page, the URL only resovles to 'This page cannot be displayed'.
This is a new cust. I did not setup the RWW (and I have no expirience with the Remote Web Workspace). Please give some insite into where (on the server) I might see existing settings (such as public IP) or what ports need to be opened.
Thanks for any assistance.

RWW uses ports 80, 443, 4125 & 444

80 & 443 is for the /remote web pages.
4125 is for the remote desktop features.
444 is for access to companyweb (internal web site)

All of these need opening on your firewall and forwarding to your SBS server.

Thanks, I setup firewall polies for https (443) and RWW (4125) (80 already configured) and all testing worked!
Side note - the sonicwall needed me to creat a new service for 4125.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
