I think I get the basics of the ports and a dynamic or static IP for getting to a server but I dont think I know what to do to pulish the page on IIS on the SBS that hoste the remote web workplace.  

I saw and see this site as remote.sbs.com and also available internally as well.   This page appears template form and always looks the same.

What are the steps to activate and view this page from the net and allow remote access. ? ????

I'm not exactly clear on your question. I assume you're talking about SBS 2003.

First - If you are trying to reach Remote Web Workplace (RWW) it has the following URL's by default:
Internal: http://servername/remote
External: FQDN/remote (Example: http://servername.domain.com/remote)

Are you trying to have a setup where remote users just type https://remote.domain.com and end up at the RWW sign-on screen?

If so:
1) Have your ISP (or whomever hosts your DNS records) to create an A Record pointing remote.domain.com to the public IP address of your SBS box.
2) Make sure ports 80 and 443 are open on your firewall and pointing to the IP address of your SBS box.
3) The SSL certificate needs to match remote.domain.com. If it doesn't match, you can change it by re-running CEICW, but CAUTION - that will replace the existing SSL certificate and break any existing SmartPhone or RPC over HTTPS setups clients have. Also, to do the redirect you will want the "Business Web Site (wwwroot)" and the "Remote Web Workplace" checkboxes checked in CEICW.
4) Go to the Server Management Console | Advanced Management | Internet Information Services | Web Sites | Default Web Site | right-click default.htm | click Properties.
5) On the File tab, under "The content for this resource should come from" choose "A redirection to a URL"
6) In the "Redirect to" box type: https://remote.domain.com/remote (substituting "domain" with your external domain name"). Example: https://remote.icanhascheezburger.com/remote
7) "The client willl be sent to" selection should be "The exact URL entered above" checkbox.
8) Click OK.
