Security error when connecting to Terminal Services

I get an error, " Because of a security error, the client could not connect to the remote comptuer.  Verify that you are logged on to the network and then try connecting again".  

I have two servers one SBS2003, its the main DC and one application non DC (member) w2k server.  The non DC server as an application that needs access from remote staff.  I have a sonicwall firewall configured for VPN and setup to get the DHCP infor from the main SBS2003 server.  In which it does.  I have validated this in the lease addresses of the dhcp console.  I can connect all the time to the main SBS2003 server via terminal services but I get the above error when I go to connect the the W2K application server.  When I'm in house I can connect terminal services just fine to the W2K application server.  I only get this error when I access the application server remotely.   Any Ideas.  

I did a search and licenses was mentioned but since this is a W2K server and I'm using XP, I should have a license issue on that application server, right?

Hmm, also, is there any event id in the server when you try to connect remotely?

I had a similar problem and I disabled the license logging service and was able to get in with no problems.

Superior storage. Superior surveillance.

WD Purple drives are built for 24/7, always-on, high-definition security systems. With support for up to 8 hard drives and 32 cameras, WD Purple drives are optimized for surveillance.

Ok, I checked the license logging service and it was disabled. The only event id's are printer ones like 1106 and 1111, printer driver not found.  I printed out the microsoft case and I'm going down there to execute those steps.  I'll let you guys know what I find out.

Thanks for all your help!

It was the termial server certificate that was corrupted.  I had to delete the registry entries and re-install terminal services.  Thanks everyone for your fast response and help.

I am having the same problem but it only happens when you connect with a 98 or 2000 machine. When i connect with an XP client its fine. No events logged. Tried wiping the cerfificates out of the registry and reactivating, even by phone. Still no luck. Any ideas?

Heh,.... nevermind, it appears that after you do the certificate stuff a reboot is required :)
