I am trying to log into a Win2003 server that has an account setup with a username and password. I try to log into any machine that needs a password, and I ger an error -5000. However, if I'm just logging into the machine that has just public file sharing access on, it works.

any clues would greatly reduce the number of hairs on my PHYSICAL desktop!

"One note: If this is a domain controller, you will need to set it with the 'Domain Controller Security Policy' editor under the 'Administrative Tools' Menu. Otherwise it'll be reset nightly.

You need to go to 'Security Settings', 'Local Policies', 'Security Options'. You then need to set the 'Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications' to disabled. It is enabled by default."
