Mobile Admin for sbs2003

One of our users lost their mobile phone in the snow and I needed to initiate remote wipe of the device. I downloaded and installed the MobileAdmin pack but whenever I went into the Wipe page I would get a 403 error as below

he remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.

The advice at Experts Exchange mentioned that you need to remove require ssl to the exadmin directory in sbs, a fact backed up at Vladville. Shortly afterwards the phone was wiped.
