Windows 2000 Server and TS question

The remote computer disconnected the session because of an error in the licensing protocol. Please try connecting to the remote computer again or contact your server administrator.

There's my error when I attempt to connect from MY PC at my desk.  This is the same PC I've been using to connect to this server for three years now.  I connect almost every day.

Today, I get the message above but only when I connect from MY PC.  All PCs in the office can connect and I can connect via my laptop and via a new PC I just built and OSed here in the office.  It seems that I only get the message when I connect from my PC.

I've checked the license service and it's running.  We have 11 available TS licenses if we need them (since I'm running XP on my machine and I'm logging into a Win 2000 server I'm good there) and I "see" nothing wrong.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Cliff

Try the steps in the link below.  I know it relates to 2003, but its valid for 2000 also.

Been there, done that.  No luck.

Thing is, I only get the message when I try to connect from my desktop in my office and my notebook over dialup from a remote location.  I've used these smae PCs for three years with no trouble.  The TS has remained static for at least the last nine months with no changes.  Also, if I go to a PC that has NOT ever logged into this TS, I can log in all day long.  This includes my Mac.  The problem seesm to be with just my desktop and my notebook.  

I looked at licenses and the two PCs in question do not have expired CALs, but I cannot otherwise figure out the problem.

Found a similar issue on the web:

Solution involves modifying the registry, and doing so improperly may render your computer useless, so proceed with caution only if you are familiar with the registry.

Hope it helps,
