full rights will not let user run server based software, only 'run as' administrator works

Server 2003

I am running an book keeping software (Tally) that is server based. It runs of the server, and connects on port 10,000 and in the ini file i direct it via ip ( If I run as administrator on the workstation, I can connect just fine, but if i run as the user I can not. It used to work when it ran on port 9000, but we had to change it because of an update to the software.

If i run the software logged in as the user but using the 'run as' and give the program admnistrative credentials it works fine, but as the local user it does not. The user has full rights on the folder and can connect create delete, the works. I have added him on the security tab with full rights, but still the server does not let him connect unless running as admnistrator. Any suggestions?

well, to be honest I don't know. We ran it on port 9000 before, and it worked great, but when we changed to port 10000 it stopped working.

Where would i check for process rights?

turned out that the ini file should have the servername:portnumber not the serverip:portnumber and then it worked. Would glad if someone whould tell me why that is, but it's solved so I am closing this down.
