We have a SBS 2008 server running in our network.  Our remote users connect thru RWW occasionally to check their email or connect to their work computer.  That works fine.  We have a security certificate issued from GoDaddy and have no known issues.

We also have a new Server 2008 installed running SQL and SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise.  We have developed a site and are ready to roll it out for our employees to use, however, I cannot ascertain how to make this site available thru RWW.  Currently, the Internal Web SIte link on RWW points to the companyweb site on the SBS 2008 server directly.

We have changed DNS to point companyweb to the new server and that works great internally.  I have added a redirect http on the SBS server itself pointing to companyweb, didnt work.  I tried adding redirect pointing to the actual servername\default.aspx and that didnt work either.

I have perused experts-exchange and have found a variety of things that are "close" but nothing has helped up to now.

Any advise or guidance would be greatly appreciated.  We need to be able to access new SharePoint site thru RWW.

Thank you in advance.

This is a combination of a limitation with NAT and the tight integration of SBS including the uniqueness of RWW. put simply, you cannot accomplish what you want. However, what you CAN do is publish the site under another name (not compan web) and put that link in the links section of RWW for users. If you want to use the standard SSL port of 443, you will also need a second public IP and will need to set up port forwarding appropriately.
