RWW 2008 not allowing connections to Desktop computers

Hey Smart people,

I hope you folks had a good Christmas!

I can connect to RWW just fine.  However, RWW won't allow anyone to connect to a client computer on the domain from outside the firewall.  Login Credentials keep coming back asking for a username and password and you can never get connected.  There are no error messages.  It acts as if it's a password issue, but I've verified it multiple times.  OWA is fine and email flows in and out.

I believe the firewall (sonicwall) is setup properly as I have ports 80 443, 987, 25 1723, 3389 & 4125 forwarded to the server.  I can RDP into the server using the external address, so I don't thikn it's a firewall issue.  I even removed the firewall altogether to test the direct connection, but I had the same issue.

Server is an SBS 2008 Standard.  We have an SSL Certificate from Godaddy installed.  SSL is for mail.domain.com not sure if I set it up for autodiscover.domain .com or remote.domain.com Godaddy domain manager has A record entries for remote.domain.com and mail.domain.com

Here's the weird part: I can connect to RWW internally using the server's internal IP address and I am able to connect to the client computer just fine.

Thanks in advance,

RJ

Check with the SBS BPA for internal issues. If there is no issues found check you firewall settings.

I found the solution to be in IIS Manager.

You need to enable windows authentication in the Authentication applet for the SBS web applications menu.
RJ,

Glad you got it working.
Using the wizards would have made the appropriate settings in IIS.
The SBS BPA would have asked you to rerun certain wizards.
