Running Terminal Services on Win 2000 Professional

I have installed Terminal Services on a Windows 2000 Professional workstation box.  The service appears to be starting OK but I cannot connect to the "server" when running the terminal services program.
I get a "You could not be authenicated on this server" error message.

The workstation is not on a domain, just a small local workgroup.

Can you run Terminal services on a workgroup?  

Any other ideas on what the error message means?

The server you are running TS against is not set up to allow local logon. Start-Programs-Admin Tools- Local Security Policy- Allow local logon  if I remember correctly.

You probably installed the terminal services *client* software.
W2k professional does not offer Terminal Services (as a server). W2k Terminal Services can only be installed on W2k Server.
And, no, there are no tweaks around this.
