    Hello,

    I'm writing a webservice which runs on a windows 2003 server. Of course this
    is protected by a username/password.

    The webservice runs fine when called from a remote computer. When the
    webservice is called from the local machine is fails by an error 401
    (authentication failed)

    When I try to login on the server with the same username/password it fails.
    Even when the user is part of the users group.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

  2. Check the security log via Event Viewer for logon failures which may give
    some helpful information and also use Local Security Policy [secpol.msc] to
    check the user rights for logon locally and deny logon locally to make sure
    they are what you need and keep in mind that deny user rights override the
    corresponding allow user right. It may also help to make sure that auditing
    of privilege use is enabled for failure if it is not already. --- Steve
