I have a sbs 2012 essentials server setup with anywhere access for the users. We are using the free Microsoft .remotewebaccess.com link. It was working until a few weeks ago.
 
Now it is displaying the following error page when accessing it (see attached).

I have rebooted the server, rebooted IIS, disabled\enabled anywhere access using the server dashboard. The wizard completes without any errors(see attached).

Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide in resolving this issue.

I believe that I just found the issue and resolved it. It appears that running SFC /scannow on a server 2012 essentials box will break access anywhere.

Following this post:http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/6946b2f1-283d-4a09-b939-40acb3cafdfa/anywhere-access-has-stopped-working


And this users comment:
For a quick workaround, you can unzip the linked file, and use these files to replace the wrong web.config changed by the sfc.

Note there are 6 web.config files, in different sub folders under C:\Program Files\Windows Server\Bin\WebApps, please follow the file folder structure to replace each of them"

Holler back if you need any help.

I replaced the files and access anywhere started working.

Has anyone else ran across this?

Running SFC on any domain controller can have undesired results I am afraid.
