The Account Is Not Authorized to Login from This Station

Posted on 2006-05-23

I have a branch office with a winodws 2003 enterprise server, 2 XP and 10 win2k workstations. The network is working fine but when I try to access any computer from the server I got the following message "The Account Is Not Authorized to Login from This Station". I read some MS articles but they mainly apply for workstations. I can connect from any worktation to the server or any pc in the network.
Does anybody had this issue before? I have reviewwed the server configs and logs but I do not find errors at all.
thanks in advance,
Moises Perez
