Hi, I have a sbs03 that my boss has asked me to setup RWW. This has not been setup before on this server. I am trying to test it internally first before enabling any ports on my router.
On a test pc, i type in 2003server/remote - login. go to connect to client desktop, select the client pc - connect.
I then get - connectivity to the remote computer could not be established
I have disabled the windows firewall and AV. I can also not connect to any other pc's
Is there some thing i'm missing or need to install on the workstation ?

The clients have to be members of a specific group and the machines need to be connected using the SBS connectcomputer. Also, it could be as simple as running the internet configuration wizard. These articles give a rundown...the second one is a start to finish configuration and the first one is troubleshooting for your issue in case the correct configuration doesn't work.

Hope these help.
