When I try to login into a computer through RWW, it gives the error message
"Connectivity to the remote computer could not be established.Ensure that the remote computer is on and connected to the widows small business server network."

What settings should be set up that this user can login into this computer, or that this computer can allow logins for users.

Thanks

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.

Have you confirmed that Remote Access is enabled on the client system?  My Computer > Properties > Remote Tab.  Ensure "Allow User to Connect Remotely to this Computer" is checked.  I've run into this myself and this was the (easiest) but last thing I forgot to check.  Otherwise, ranazonse gave you some great links to check out.
