I turned on Remote Desktop access on the computer and added users allowed to access yet when I log in to Remote Web Workplace I don't see any that are available for me to RDP in to.

Did you add the users through the SBS console?

If you added them through ADUC you could experience problems.

Not sure which version of SBS you have, but if it's 2008 or 2011 then you needed to join the computer to the domain using http://<servername>/connect.

Then, you should always manage things from the SBS Console -- not on each individual machine.

At this point the computers are probably not showing up because they aren't in the correct OU in Active Directory.  Move them into My Business > Computers > SBS Computers.

Make sure users are all in My Business > Users > SBS Users

Then, in the SBS Console, click Users and Groups and open the properties of a user account so you can assign them to the appropriate machine:
