Connect to Client Desktop thru Remote Web Access to Vista Desktop - Small Business Server 2003

Running Small business Server 2003. Computer with problems is Windows Vista, have it joined to the domain all is fine with logging onto the computer while on local area network. Using Remote Web Workplace. I can log on, get to the screen where you choose a client desktop to log onto (Connect to client Desktop) and select the Vista computer from the list. I see the logon screen, it has the domain name and user name, but when I try to log on it says the user name or password is incorrect. I am CERTAIN I am using the correct user name and password. If I try to log on using the local computer account name and password I can log on, just can't log on to the domain. XP machines are fine, can remote desktop to them.

I turned off the Windows firewall. In System Properties for Remote Desktop I have bulleted Allow Connections from computers running any version of remote desktop (less secure).  

Any suggestions?

The first one was not applicable.  The second one I had already applied that update addressed in that article, which is how I joined Vista computer to the domain in the first place.

The problem turned out to be this: the domain name offered at the login screen was the wrong domain name - it was the long fully qualified name and when I shortened it to the the domain name the user uses to log into the domain it let me log on...

...so the question really needs to be withdrawn. But I thank you for your response.

I'm sorry if I am not closing this out correctly - you deserve points for responding, although you really didn't address my problem.
