SBS 2003 RWW problem with .net 2.0

We just took over a company with SBS 2003 RWW for their remote access.  They were not doing backups, so we installed a network attached HD for backups and the install software installs .net 2.0.  We did not realize there was a conflict with SBS and .net 2.0 but it has broken the RWW access.

I have uninstalled .net 2.0 and re-registered .net 1.1 but now when users access the secure site, they can get to the welcome page, but when you click on RWW they receive a "Directory Listing Denied
This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed." error or simply a "permissions denied" error.  

Everything was working fine until the .net install.  so I don't think it has anythign to do with the ports on the router

You can run .net 2 on SBS 2003. What probably happened was it changed the default website settings to V2. Go to IIS manager and make sure the default website is using v1.1.4322.
Make sure that the ASP.NET configuration for the RWW website is set to 1.1 in the IIS Manager and rerun the CEICW.

@ murgroup:  How do I verify in IIS that the default website is using v1.1.4322?
Learn SQL Server Core 2016

This course will introduce you to SQL Server Core 2016, as well as teach you about SSMS, data tools, installation, server configuration, using Management Studio, and writing and executing queries.

Open IIS Manager.  Start --> Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager
Expand the list of websites.
Right-click on your Default Web Site and select Properties.
Click the ASP.NET tab.
Select the ASP.NET version from the drop down list.

I appologize for sounding like an idiot.   But the tab is not an option under the properties of the default website.  My options are:
Web Site
ISAPI Filters
Home Directory
Directory Security
HTTP Headers
Custom Errors
Server Extensions 2002

for the record, I did run aspnet_regiis.exe -i on the 1.1 version earlier today and tried re-runnign CEICW after but still get this error.

I found the solution.  The default.htm for the default web page was missing the link to the login page.  Where it should have gone to ..\remote\logon.aspx, the file was overwritten to just go to ...\remote  

I am splitting the reward points between both of you, for the assistance.
