problem connecting to windows 7 through RWW in SBS 2003

I really don't understand this one. I added a new Windows 7 pro to an sbs2003 box. It works fine, people can log in, etc. But when those same people try to log in from outside using RWW, they can get all the way up to the login and then no matter what I have tried, Windows keeps telling them that they have entered either an incorrect username or password. Any help would be appreciated, because they really use this feature a lot. It worked just fine with windows XP, but the machine died.

karlmc15, that link shows how to share files/folders on windows 7 computer. This is not the problem. But I will look at firewall. but the problem always seems to be logging into the computer itself. No problem getting to server or any other workstations on SBS2003 system.

Well, I found the solution to this quite by accident. When adding Windows 7 to SBS and trying to use RWW, you need to log in with the following change:
Domain\user
Then you use the normal password and it works just fine.
