    I connect to many servers with RDC, both on the local network, and remotely.
    Do you get any error messages?

    You'll have to post more details. Are you trying to connect to a terminal
    server. Are you trying to remotely administer a server? Could you connect
    with XP? Please detail what you are trying to do and the steps you take to
    do it.

  5. Hi. I believe the problem is happening because the server is using Network
    Level Authentication and the client is not. On the Server, go to the Remote
    tab and select "Allow connections from computers running any version of
    Remote Desktop."

    Let me know if this doesn't solve the problem. Thanks.

  6. I didn't think NLA was available for anything other than Longhorn and Vista?

  7. Sorry but it has not solved the problem. Actually my problem is to login
    remotely to other pc which has windows server 2003 not logging in remotely to
    windows vista.
    In other words, logging to windows vista from older versions is happening
    but logging in from older versions to windows vista is not happening. Please
    help !

    I'm even more confused after this post. Please post some details of what you
    are trying to do. e.g. I am using a computer running Vista Business. I am
    using Remote Desktop Connection to logon and administer a computer running
    Server 2003 SP2 that is connected to the same subnet. The server is a
    domain controller. I see this error message "xxxxx yyyyy zzzzz" on the
    screen when I try this. I am sure your situation is different from this
    scenario but that is the kind of detail we need, exactly what you are trying
    to do and what happens when you do it.

  9. I am using a computer running Vista Business. I am
    using Remote Desktop Connection to logon and administer a computer running
    Server 2003 SP2 that is connected to the same subnet. The server is a
    domain controller. I see this error message "The remote computer is running
    a version of Windows that is earlier than WindowsVvista" on the
    screen when I try this. Hope its enough for you to rectify the problem.

    Thank you. That helps. I'm looking at that dialog box right now. At the
    bottom it says "Do you want to continue?" I click on "Yes" then I am
    connected to the server where I have to enter my username and password
    again. Is this not the case in your situation?

  11. I don't know if you have solved your issue yet but you can configure the
    Vista RDP 6.0 client to "Always connect, even if authentication fails" in
    the Remote Desktop "Options -> Advanced -> Server authentication ->
    Authentication options:" drop down. That should preclude you from getting
    the error message when connecting to a legacy server that does not support
    Network Level Authentication (NLA).
