Trouble shooting Remote Web Workplace

I've recently built a new SBS Server 2003 system.  RWW worked initially, but has recently begun throwing upo errors indicating that the remote system may not be available or accepting remote connections.

The odd thing is that browsing from within the network worksjust fine.  For example, from the SBS box https:\\localhost\remote brings up the login prompt and allows access.  The Windows firewall service is disabled, and the networks firewall specifically has the following ports opened and allowed to the SBS box: 80, 443, 4125 and 3389.

What else am I missing?  I am very hesitant about running the Internet wizard as I've spent a lot of time getting RPC and ActiveSyn working.

Are you running SBS premium or standard?

I've seen this error many times in the exact senario you are talking about, ie, externally only. It has always been an issue with port 4125 not being forwarded correctly. I know you have stated that it is being forwarded but can you again just confirm that it is correctly configured.

Also, you should not be worried about re-running CEICW, if nothing else it would help rather than hinder.

Yepp, I missed the NAT rule.  The port was allowed through the firewall, but it was failing to NAT that specific port.  Thanks for the reminder to look at the forwarding again!
