Sharepoint - List does not exist error when using SBS2011 Remote Web Access

Hi All

I have setup a SBS2011 Server and am starting to play with Sharepoint.  The site works fine when on the local network, but when I try to use it externally, i get an error when accessing certain parts of the site.  I have checked that the pages are checked in and they all appear to be.  I have attached a screen shot of the error I am getting.

Error
List Does not exist

Thanks

Just a normal list with the same permissions as other lists?
No external content or lookups to other protected lists?

The default SBS settings do not (or didn't in my case) add any Alternative access mappings.  I added one in for remote.mycompant.com but missed off the :987 at the end.  Once I added this is all sites/pages worked ok
These would have been added automatically when you ran the Internet Address Management Wizard.  If they didn't get created for some reason, the best thing you can do is to run the wizard again.  If they still don't get created then you can review the wizard logs to see why it fails.

It is important to use the wizard because there are many additional things which must have the same configuration.  Please review these two blog posts for more information:
