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.

seems it may have been the workstation needing a kick, worked a treat,
