The ability to remotely administer Windows Small Business Server can prove priceless. Adding new users, resetting account lockouts and passwords, reviewing event logs, and troubleshooting numerous other common issues needn't require an in-person visit to the office on weekends or remote facilities, even, on weekdays.

Windows Small Business Server possesses powerful remote administration features. They're so important to productivity and the OS' maintenance, in fact, that the SBS To Do List (activated at installation) dedicates its third configuration step specifically to configuring remote access and VPN connections.

I've tried using the wizard but right at the end I contiue to get a generic error that says it can't delete a temp file (I can supply the file name and exact error if needed). I know you say setting the access manually is a mistake but how do you get around an error of this type. I'm thinking it has something to do with the fact the temp file that the wizard is trying to delete is set as read only but changing the setting doesn't seem to make a difference. Any information would be helpful I'm pretty new at the server setup game. Thanks,
