Cannot access any computers via remote web workplace

I have a SBS 2008 server which has been working fine until recently. Now when users try to access any of their PCs (via RDP) using remote web workplace they get the following error:



"the wizard cannot configure remote desktop connection settings. make sure that the client version of remote desktop protocol 6.0 or later is installed on this computer"



This does not appear to be a problem with the version of the RDP client.

When I  try accessing PCs via RWW from a device (actually the server) on the LAN it works fine.

Its seems to be only from outside the firewall. Nothing has changed on the firewall for a long time.

Any ideas?

Internet Explorer 10 can cause this, if you're using go back to IE9 and test it should work.

Restart the remote desktop gateway service if WORKS2011's suggestion fails.

Rolled back to IE9. Now works perfectly.
