I have an XP Pro computer that I need remote access to, but when I try to access the computer remotely it says "The local policy of the system does not permit you to logon interactively.", I have checked 'Remote Desktop: Allow users to connect remotely to this computer'. All other computers on my network can be accessed remotely. I check the local policy and I don't see where the local policy change needs to be made, can someone help?

Thank you,

Start|Run, type:

Go to Advanced - Advanced, click on groups and select Remote Desktop Users. Now try to add group Everyone to the list. Tray now to connect. If connection works, you can remove everyone and put user account that need access to (everyone was only for test).

Also be sure that firewall is off.

Cro0707: I added everyone and myself and still no success. I loged on remotely using the local admin account and my domain admin account and it still saying "The local policy of the system does not permit you to logon interactively."

younghv: all remote/RAS servers are running.

Thanks for you replys, any other suggestions?

Hello,

Go to 'Start' -> 'Run' the type 'gpedit.msc'

In the computer section under

Windows Settings \ Security Settings \ Local Policies \ User Rights Assignments \ Allow Login Through Terminal Services

Double-click that setting and add you user account, then reboot.

Maybe this will help you:

On the Computer your having issues with do the following:

1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Local Security Settings
2. Select "Local Policies", Then "User Rights Assignment"
3. Make sure the user your trying to logon to locally is displayed under "Allow Logon through terminal services" and "Allow logon locally" and that the same user is NOT under "Deny logon through terminal services" and "Deny logon locally".

These are the only 4 policies off the top of my head that might be giving you issues if your trying to access the computer using RDP (terminal services).
