Hi,

I'm having an issue connecting to computers through SBS 2k8 using remote web. I can use remote desktop to connect. Any ideas? Let me know what additional info is needed.

Thanks,

Thanks for the quick response! RWW doesn't error out it simply won't let me use the connect to computer function. This function previously worked flawless.

Thanks,

To help clarify.. I can get to the dashboard (picture attached) but the connect to computer option is missing. Any ideas as to what would make it suddenly disappear?

The problem is, you are NOT using Internet Explorer

If you use Safari, Opera, Firefox - you wont see the option for Connect to Computer
