I'm attempting to add remote computer access to a user via RWW.  The client has SBS 2008.  I am able to login and connect to the RWW internally (inside company network) and see the "Connect to Computer" widget (along with E-mail, Internal Site, etc.) and the correct list of computers that the user can connect to.  However, when attempting to login and connect to the company RWW externally (from the internet/outside the network), the "Connect to Computer" widget is not present.  E-mail and the other widgets are present, however.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

That is an Active-X control, so it only appears if you are using a compatible version of Internet Explorer. No Chrome, Safari, or Firefox.
