Applies To: Windows SBS 2008

To use Remote Web Workplace
  1. On the remote computer, open an Internet browser, such as Internet Explorer.

  2. In the address bar, type https://<DomainName>/remote, where <DomainName> is the external domain name of your organization, such as contoso.com.

    note
    If you receive an error message that says, "There is a problem with this web site’s security certificate," (see Figure 17), it is strongly recommended that you not visit the Remote Web Workplace Web site. To resolve this error, install the security certificate for your server on your remote computer. For detailed information about how to do this, see Install the security certificate that is issued by the server on a remote computer.
