McAfee shield was loaded on SBS 2003 Server with ISA 2004. Have been unable to load RWW home page or remote page both internally and externally since.

McAfee's firewall will probably block access. You will need to edit it's firewall settings to allow access on the following ports for all connections including the internet, for those services that you use. If that requires an IP 0.0.0.0 implies 'all'
25 SMTP
443 SSL, OWA, and RWW
444  Sharepoint
1723  SBS VPN
4125 RWW

The McAfee firewall is not loaded on this machine. Just virus and Browser protection

Interesting. The "Browser protection" feature if installed on a client machine could definitely block the required Active-X component, but I would be surprised if it would affect the server.  Is McAfee insalled on clients as well?

Can you verify access is not blocked by the McAfee firewall to the server by telneting the SBS from off site?
telnet  <IP address>  443
If the server is accessible you will get a blank screen with a flashing cursor. If blocked it will time out or produce an error.

I've used mcafee virusscan enterprise on SBS many times with no issues.   The latest version I've used is the 8.7i.  If you're using that version or older, then I'd look at IIS to make sure all the services are running and the host headers are set correctly.

Turns out our consultant was migrating services to a new server and DNS was the issue. problem solved when DNS propagated through.

Thanks for updating cherylbones. I assume without DNS you must have had other issues as well. For the record you can add as many DNS servers as you like, but you must maintain DNS on the SBS.
