Remote Web workplace is NOT enabled

I am administrating a network with a Server 2003 DC and a Server 2008 with Exchange 2007 as a member server and another S2003 as Terminal server.
Please notice that this is not a Small Business Server.

In the "old days" users were able to access the Terminal server via Remote Web Workplace
via the address MAIL.DOMAINNAME.DK/REMOTE but this has not worked for a couple of years now.

Can anyone tell me what I have to enable and which ports I have to open  to get this up and running again?

you need to open the port 3389, 80, 443 and forward it to your TSE server IP.

Check if the Remote Desktop Web Connection is installed with your IIS server (Add/Remove Programs, Application Server, www)

remote web workplace IS NOT a part of the Standard Product line...
Given that you are using that terminology...perhaps you had SBS 2003 at one time?

Agreed, it is not an option in your domain, but might someone have configured TSweb access using that URL?
TSweb is not remote web workplace, but will allow web/RDP access direct to one server only (no PC's).

TSweb is known to be problematic and has been broken on occasion by updates. The following article outlines configuration. It requires port 3389 be forwarded to the appropriate server, and I thought it also required port 80 but that article does not mention it.

Dear All

I thank you for your comments on the subject.
I think you are right about your considerations cause this was priviously a Small Business network.

Can anyone tell me if the TSWEB works the same way eg as an URL directly from any IE browser?

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

yes it does but the URL is different as pointed out in the article that Rob linked to, but users MUST know their machine name to be able to connect...it does not present a list like Remote Web Workplace does

TSweb is exactly the same as RDP. Access from any location to one server only, but the initial connection is through a browser rather than the RDP client. It really doesn't offer any features that RWW does. Because it is known to be problematic, I would recommend RDP over TSweb.

You might be interested in a new product by Microsoft called Windows Storage Server Essentials.
This is intended as a data storage server but is full Windows server, can be joined to a domain, will do automatic backup of up to 25 PC's, but most importantly in your case, offers advanced Remote Web Workplace features:

Until now this was not available as an option for a non-SBS domain.
