    Hi, I'm having a problem using a using Vista build 5472 remote desktop to
    connect to a Windows Server 2003 client. Works fine with Windows XP.

    My PC is on a domain, the client is on the domain also, however I'm
    attempting to connect to a local account. I don't have the option to change
    the default domain to the local machine name in the "Windows security - Enter
    your credentials" box. I've tried inputting machine name/username and this
    doesn't help, it just errors with "This computer can't connect to the remote
    computer" etc...

    I've checked the machine can be pinged, tried running RDC as administrator,
    switched off group policy inheritance... Nothing seem to allow me to change
    the domain..

    Anyone else had this type of problem?

    Sorry all, forget this one, I got it working. I was using a dual boot setup
    for my Vista test machine, with it's own IP, the IP had blocked at our border
