Can't get "net use" to map a printer on a Windows Server

Using the method 1 described here: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=314499

On a workstation, but I'm getting this error:

System Error 1240 Has Occurred. The Account Is Not Authorized to Login from This Station

But the error here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/224287

Shouldn't be a problem as it's a Windows 2003 server SP2, was working earlier this week. Nothing in the event logs to suggest what's going on.
