How to setup sbs 2003 remote workspace

Ok, I've setup my sbs server, ran the iecw, and I'm using a pnp router.  Now I want to find out how to access my system using remote workspace from outside the network. But I'm not sure if I have things setup correctly.  
I created an A host record on my domain      called remote   that points to my static ip address at my office where my 2003 sbs server is.  
Now in order to access this I need to use   https://remote.mydomain.com  ?

Ports 443 and 4125 need to be forwarded from the router to the SBS, but in theory UPnP should have done that.

When you run/ran the connect to the internet wizard you need to check the option box for RWW.  That should be all you need.

Thanks Rob, I managed to get this going, had to reset my router and then ran the EICW again and all is working, so I guess that means I got the dns A record correct. LOL  That was easier than I expected.  
Thanks for the help, I'm posting another question about adding emails.
