The Remote Web Workplace is setup internally, with sbs 2011 standard.  I want to add it to a subdomain and have clients access their files externally.

I was wondering how to add it to a website. Something like add a cname to website.com/remote? then point something to our server?
^thats probably not it, but you see where I am going with this.

Thanks in advance.

BTW, I dont need it for anything but file sharing.  Email is offsite, so exchange not required.

if all you want is file sharing... why not just setup a VPN and leave the website alone?

There is a vpn functional, but they want the ability to have any user log in from anywhere without having to setting up a VPN.

Right, I have read that link and still do not understand what I need to do to change https://sites/remote to https://website.com/remote

the website.com is not hosted locally so, I need to make changes with the webmaster.  I need to make changes on the server obviously changing the url

I would add an A record pointing to the site address, for example for

http://remote.domainname.com

Host A: Host: remote, points to: ipaddress of SBS

sorry, not the ip address of the SBS rather the IP of the firewall that the SBS sits behind then port forward through your firewall to the SBS.
