Windows 2011 Remote Website 403.6 Error

Last Modified: 2013-12-02
I am in the process of migrating from windows 2003 SBS to windows 2011 SBS. I am running both servers within the same domain for my allowed 30 days. I only have FTP and some user data to finish moving. My problem is with https://Remote.<domain name>.com. Locally through the intranet or remotely when connected through VPN i can access the website and perform all functions. When out of the office and without VPN I get the error:
