Unable to connect to Remote Web Workplace page outside network

I have set up my VPN just fine and can connect OK. I also set up the Remote Web Workplace page and can access the page just fine within my network but when trying to access from a remote location I get 404 - File or directory not found.
On the IIS7 when running a test for the website I get the following message:
The server is configured to use pass-through authentication with a built-in account to access the specified physical path. However, IIS Manager cannot verify whether the built-in account has access. Make sure that the application pool identity has Read access to the physical path. If this server is joined to a domain, and the application pool identity is NetworkService or LocalSystem, verify that <domain>\<computer_name>$ has Read access to the physical path. Then test these settings again.

Could you please share details of your environment, How many servers and how they are configured, If this is sharepoint then have you configured alternate access mapping and if it is using any certificate

By the error it seems as the read access for network service is denied, Please check the folder where the site is and make sure the computer account i.e. computername$ account is added for access on the server, Rest would like to know the configuration to comment further

I only have 1 server running windows 2k8. This is not SharePoint, its the default remote workplace webpage and it is not using any certificate. I followed your recommendation to add the computername$ and granted full permissions but still the same alert

Ok, Try changing the App pool account to a power user or domain admin, Make sure you have added the header on the website in IIS for your external site name, Are you able to reach any of the other ports (Check firewall/proxy settings)
