OWA only needs port 443 forwarded from the router to the SBS. RWW needs 443 and 4125. Is the later forwarded?

When you telnet 4125 it works?
Very odd. You should be able to telnet to 443, but 4125 is actually blocked. Once an SSL connection is established with 443 it allows the RWW traffic on 4125. $$# kind of acts as a switch.

Does RWW work from the LAN with http://SBSname/remote ?
If no go to the IIS management console, click on web sites and verify in the right window all sites are running.

You say that you have Sharepoint 3?  RWW and Companyweb cannot run on Sharepoint 3.  You can install v3 but only in side-by-side mode.  More details here:

i have done an upgrade fpt sharepoint 2.0, do you think it is better to uninstall Sharepoint 3.0 then repair sharepoint 2.0? so i can have the RWW working again?

That is your problem.  You cant upgrade Sharepoint 2 to 3 on SBS as it breaks RWW and companyweb.  You will need to uninstall v3 and re-installv2 and if you really need v3 do a side-by-side install as per the article above.

Are you trying to RDP to a PC or the SBS Server?  Also, are you doing this on the LAN or externally?

Hello there,

I have uninstalled sharepoint 3.0 and re-installed sharepoint 2.0 and still have no luck to access the Remote Web Workplace? please help!!!
You could try following this article which shows how to remove and re-install the "intranet" component of SBS 2003, of which RWW is a part.
