with the follwoing settings. Currently we have access to OWA thru http://mail.domainname.com/exchange I presume that I can also setup remote access using the same http://mail.domainname.com/remote is that correct? Only our router doesn't appear to be totally UPNP compatible and I am not sure what ports need to be enabled for port forwarding to the internal IP address of the SBS2003 server, can anyone help.If you specified mail.domainname.com as the name for the web server certificate, then yes, both OWA and RWW would be available using the URLs you've outlined. As far as ports go, RWW requires 443 (for the https element), plus 4125 for the Remote Desktop capability. If you want the http to https redirection to occur, you also need port 80 forwarded. If you'
am trying to determine if the following is correct behavior. Here is the setup: 1. SBS 2003 running RWW. 2. User has a Kyocera default printer set on the desktop running Vista SP1. There are other printers as well, like the Microsoft XPS Writer and Quickbooks PDF. 3. User goes home and remotes into the desktop computer via RWW. The remote system is also running Vista SP1. 4. During this default printer on the workstation gets changed after you connect to the desktop via RWW and redirect the local printer. If I have misunderstood the problem, please don't hesitate to let me know. Suggestions: ================== To confirm the issue you descript, I made a test in SBS 2003 and try to reproduce the issue. However, on my side I cannot reproduce it with the following steps. 1

I also assume that you do not have a registered domain name and are not hosting your own Exchange server on the SBS server. Further, I assume you have a dynamic public IP address from ISP and not a static one. If any of this is incorrect, please advise. First
It's me again, the insane guy. Trying to do some sane things. Can anyone point me to an online step-by-step to setup RWW on SBS 2003? If not, can you give me the play-by-play yourself? Also, any suggestions for getting people without a physical office to work remotely (perhaps a VM or a group of VM's)? What patches, updates, and other considerations are necessary to add a laptop running Windows Vista to an SBS 2003 domain? How safe is it (when I tried it with SBS2K, it went ugly fast)?
; the disconnect occurs when the user is actively using the RD session, even in the middle of typing a sentence. I have also tried to change the registry timeout values and have tested logging onto RWW with the “Public computer” box unchecked. As a test, I configured one user to connect directly to her workstation via RDP on port 3389, bypassing the server and RWW. With this configuration the problem does not recur. This tells me that the problem is not a connectivity issue on the ISP side, which was my first theory. Also the issue is server-related. I have reviewed KB article #821438. The server is running Veritas Backup Exec 9.1 for SBS, but no backup jobs are running when the disconnects occur. It is also running Symantec AV 10.0 but no scheduled scans are running when
;m still having issues with it It was time to do a clean install of windows on my machine (been having issues for a while and haven't done one in about 2 years) so, it is nice and fast now but i STILL can't login from offsite using RWW It still just goes back to the same screen showing the client systems But, i got to thinking what else i'd changed I do have my system setup with multiple monitors (4 to be exact 2 Apple Cinema Displays at 1920 x 1200 resolution and 2 Sony's at 1280 x 1024) - i'm wondering if that might be the issue and if anyone has had issues like that before I can pull the monitors and disable a card to check, but would love to just type to you guys and see if i'm crazy :-) jared
setup for users who are out of the office to connect to via RWW in order to transfer files or whatever, all is working fine, however sometimes a remote user will "forget" to log off, leaving the machine locked. I can unlock it by forcing a logoff, but I hate to do this as I can't tell whether the user is actually active or simply left the session open - on a couple of occasions I've bumped a user who was in the middle of something during a time they are not normally logged on, and needless to say they weren't best pleased. Is there a way to force a RWW session to log the user off after a set time of inactivity? Failing that, is there a way to check if the user is active before bumping them? I know this is more of a "training" issue RWW
with RWW and users being disconnected while actively typing. Following is my setup. SBS 2003 standard with SP1 Sharepoint Services with SP2 update Workstations are XP Pro with SP2 - IE v6 with the pop-up blocker disabled The exact problem I am having is this: A user (from the internet) connects to RWW and RWW only to start the whole cycle again. I have tried using Remote Desktop from the Internet and directly bypassing RWW and have not had any disconnects (this I believe shows that it is not my router but rather an issue with RWW and Windows SBS 2003 server). I read in CSHerman's thread that he noticed that after installing Share Point Services SP2 update he was able to replicate the problem on other SBS 2003 servers. My question is has anyone been able to solve this issue
is partially set up (read: five computers are set up to allow Remote Desktop with the appropriate groups/user added to the Remote Desktop Users local security group on each of those five computers). Accessing via RWW is no issue. My question is this: why is it that on three of the computers an ActiveX session is created while on two others an RDP session is created? What that means is with the first computer that I set up when I would - via RWW - attempt to connect to her computer an ActiveX session connected me to that computer. Same with the other two. Now, in each of the three cases I was actually logging into RWW with the user's credentials in each case (as I know the passwords in these cases). On the next two computers (just did this morning) when I connected via
e. Is there any firewall on the remote site? Is there any additional hardware firewall/router device in front of your SBS? f. Do you have any Terminal Server deployed in the network? Do you have any server computer that setup but not running in the network? This is because RWW will go through all your servers to determine their capabilities (TS support for example). If one is showing in active directory but it cannot be contacted then the RWW will timeout and take additional time. To further troubleshoot this issue, I would give you following suggestions. 1. On the SBS server, please navigate to the following Key in the registry editor HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\SmallBusinessServer\RemoteUserPortal\K WLinks Please modify all values in this key to 0x00000000(0).

Hi folks, On my test environment I'm trying to get RWW going and am having a couple of small "issues" - its just occurred to me that I may not be able to do what I want without getting clever. My SBS2K3 server has the standard 2 NICS, the external one goes to an ADSL modem with 4 additional Ethernet ports. My test desktop is connected to the same ADSL modem on one of those extra ports, but is not a member of the SBS domain, it just connects
on SBS with only one NIC connect to a Hardware firewall Router. Thanks ! Eric ChiuOH I'vf forgot to mention my network SBS Standard - FW - Internet I've use the FW VPN instead of SBS and it works fine. Eric ChiuHi Eric For RWW and overall network security you will be much better served by adding a secong NIC and using the setup described in http://www.smallbizserver.net/Default.aspx?tabid=52 (ignore the ISA parts) Otherwise run CEICW and configure firewall for RWW. Frank McCallister COMPUMACHello Eric 1 Run the ceicw on the server ( connect to the internet in the To Do list) 2. Open ports 80, 443, and 4125 all TCP on the router and forward the traffic to the server's ip address. This should work fine I hope this helps Doug Boyd [email protected]
. I can connect to any other PC via RWW without issue. I have checked the logs on the PC and the server and there isn't anything there that would give me a clue. I looked around for solutions on the web and the groups without any luck. TIA Johngive us the output of 'ipconfig /all' from both server and client. this can be a name resolution issue. It can also be due to trying to connct at high resolution, try connecting at 800*600 or maybe 1024*???. This is not a permanent solution, it is a test.That was it. This laptop has wireless connected to the network also. I looked in DNS and there were 2 ptr records. I removed the record for the wireless nic and rww connected just fine.

on 2 out of 6 connections. To give a little background on my setup, I have a main office with a SBS 2003 server and 6 remote offices running XP SP2 connecting via VPN to the domain so they can be accessed through RWW. The 2 problematic PC's are not always failing. Sometimes I do manage to get through to them. I have done some checking and the obtain the hotfix 821438: 821438 FIX: Antivirus Programs May Cause Some Web Applications to Restart Unexpectedly http://support.microsoft.com/?id=821438 Will the client keep the session idle before the occurrence of the issue? For security enhancement, RWW session will automatically drop off. By default, the idle time is 15 minutes. I appreciate your time and look forward to hearing from you.

Hi, With my SBS2003 office network setup, I can successfully logon remotely to its workstations using Remote Web Workplace, and run applications on those computers. However, there is one application that uses a local Advantage database that crashes when I try to run remotely. Running this application onsite there is no problem. I suspect there is a permissions issue when accessing remotely, which causes the application to crash. Advantage uses a folder level permissions wherein I have to set Full Control for the users that access it. I have set appropriate permissions for my user account (the same that I use as well to logon to RWW). This was necessary even without RWW, so the application could be run onsite. So, my question is -- Is there an additional user or system account that
I have setup several SBS systems in the past, but I am OBVIOUSLY having a brain-fart here. I have set the system up and all is working well I have exchange working using the POP3 connector and I have all the PC's connected to the internal network just fine. Here is my problem I am trying to get RWW to connect and I am running into a roadblock! I usually test from inside the network using https://servername/remote when I do that, I get a page cannot be found error. If I use https://servername then I get to anything when I connect to https://servername and then click on any of the 4 options on that page. It is the same whether I am on the LAN or external. It seems like a rights issue or a site naming issue. Can anyone give me some direction here????? Thanks! M.
Hi! I have a user who uses a laptop to connect into our SBS box. I tried getting her set up on RWW, as I use it all the time. She logs in fine.

Hello All, I made it this far but need to get either a VPN or a RWW setup for this network Here is the layout: I have DSL (actiontech modem) using NAT connected to a Linksys wrv54g wireless router also using NAT with 6 laptops alwireless connections (off topic) and a SBS 2003 server cat5 connected to the linksys router.. I have tried all I know o get either a VPN connection from a remote location and using RWW. but nothing is working.. I need step-by-step. I read all kinds of different answers and nothing concrete.. Some one kind please help.. JimThere are all sorts of places that settings could be causing this to go wrong--firewall, ISA (if you're using premium), RRAS, VPN client itself. You need to provide more info. What exactly is the error you get when you

UltraVNC. They need an FTP and small fax server on a PC along with a network printer with an IP address. I asked if they could use RWW and they said that their software will be tranferring data one way from our system to theirs on an as needed basis which is determined by amount of faxes and scans done locally and RWW won't allow this. I know little about VPN or UltraVNC but when I asked them about security, they said UltraVNC had better security than RWW. We're also concerned because a similar setup not far from us had major problems, some of which were security based. In this case, I am curious as to how the the appliance would be setup (where in the current chain) and how we'd keep them only their fax/scan pc and printer. Any response would be most welcomed, VGAre
on our network. We have SBS 2003 with ISA and a DSL broadband connection with the requisite 2 NIC setup. Our DSL ISP has assigned us a block of 5 IP addresses. We've run CEICW and have full web access from server and all clients. When we type in https://one of 5 ip addresses/remote, we get the page cannot be displayed. We've opened ports 443 and 4125 in the Netopia router but still can't get a RWW logon prompt. Any advice or pointers to info would be greatly appreciated.

RWW initial screen lists "Connect to Server Desktops, connect to Client Desktops, etc." Would like to REMOVE ALL Links except for Connect to Client Desktops and a couple of other links. Users should NOT have have access to other links. Why do they have so much access by default??, especially a link to the Server??? We are using SBS 2003 R2.Hi Marty: I suspect you are connecting to the RWW page as the / a domain admin. Try connecting as a normal user. In SBS 2003 the pages are different based on your user template, but still not customizable. Rumor has it that this will be "improved" in SBS 2008.
Hi all Trying to install the RWW self generated certificate on my laptop (Vista). I am intallin gin the Trusted root Certification, but keep getting warnings about the certificate. How do I fix this? I even tried by importing using mmc, no luck.And Firefox stores it as the ip address, even on my linux machine, so I have no issues, Vista just won't.Sorry if I missed it, but: 1. What is the name on the certificate? i.e. what name did you give it in the CEICW? 2. What is the URL you use to access RWW? Examples: a cert name of "foo.domain.com" and a url of "https://foo.domain.com/remote" would match. a cert name of "foo.domain.com" and a url of "https://<ip_address>/remote" would not match,
