The remote session was disconnected because there are no Terminal Server client access licenses available for this computer

We have a Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server. it is setup with a Per User CAL Token for up to 10 users.

Users in our office have no problem connecting to this Terminal Server.
Users outside the office have had no issues.

There is 1 user who has a problem when connecting. When they VPN into the network and try to connect to this server they recieve this error

"The remote session was disconnected because there are no Terminal Server client access licenses available for this computer"

This user then connects to an older backup Terminal Server running Windows Server 2003.

I have checked the event logs and have found no errors for Terminal Server Licensing.

What could be causing this?

what operating system is the problematic user using?

Are there more then 10 people connected to the TS server when this happens?

Can you get this to work if the client uses the console switch:    
mstsc.exe /v servername /console

The user is running Windows XP (I think pro)

There are not more than 10 users connected while this happens. I can log in under her account while I was on the phone with her.

I will test the mstsc.exe /v and let you know how that works.

The method of typing

mstsc.exe /v:<servername>

does not work.

When the user does that they get the following message.

The user <Domain>\<My Username> is currently logged on to this computer, only the current user or an administrator can log on to this computer

Note where I said <My Username> The user is typing in her login name but it says only my user account or an administrator can log into this computer.

What the mess?

try deleting the MSLicensing key from the client computer and check once again.
it will be in registry at location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MSLicensing.
Delete the whole key and connect again.
