RWW Connect To My Computer At Work not displayed

I just installed a SBS 2003 server.  When connecting to RWW, Connect To My Computer At Work option is not displayed.  I have gone through the Internet Connection and Remote Access wizards.  I have also checked the registry values, where I can turn the other options on or off, but not this one.  I installed another server last week that works fine.  I have tried to compare to it, but can't pinpoint any differences.  I could use some suggestions.

The "Connect To Client Desktops option" is not present? or your computer is not present?
I assume RWW page works. If the user is not a member or the Remote Web Workplace Users group (automatically assigned with the add user wizard) they will not get that option, and if the PC was not joined to the domain using the http://SBSname/connectcomputer, the computer will not be present.

RWW does work.  The option itself is not present.  Also, the option is not present when logged in as administrator.

Sounds like before it may have been manually joined to the domain, not using  http://SBSname/connectcomputer, which doesn't add it to the RWW page.
Glad to hear you have it working.

I did it manually.  After doing the first workstation the option showed up with the one workstation available.  I had to join each work station to get them to appear.  Thank

To do it properly you need to add the computer account using the SBS management console and add user computers.
Then from the workstation go to  http://SBSname/connectcomputer  This will set permissions, install applications, set up the primary user, add the PC to RWW, and much more.

Using the manual method under Computer Properties | Computer Name | Change,  will not do all of this.

If you have a PC you wish to remove from the domain and rejoin you should follow Jeff's great instructions:
