We have created users on AD SBS 2008 (users were not created using the Console for SBS2008), the users are able to log in to the remote web access and all ports are open, we can log in using the domain admin but when they try to use their own login they and try accessing "connect to a computer" there are no computers available.
The question we have is "If is possible to have SBS 2008 Console recognize users that were created in AD" and give them remote access.

You must use the console for SBS 2008's features to work with Active Directory integration.

Run the Change Role wizard under Users in the SBS Console to pick up the users. Once they show in the console properly, you will be able to assign them the correct SBS 2008 based permissions for them to access their system via RDP.

Note that SBS 2008, even more so than SBS 2003, requires ALL of the wizards to be used for the server to be properly configured and stable.
