How to activate NLA on Windows 2003 RDP?

Hi,

Just wonder if it's possible at all to enable NLA (Network Level Authentication) on Windows 2003 Server, 'cause I can't find any information anywhere about anyone that has done it.
My problem is that when I'm at home and need to check up on my servers, I connect via VPN and run RDP against my Terminal Server. From there I (want to) start up another RDP session against my Windows 2008 server.
I have tried the KB951608 (activate CredSSP.dll...) I know it's a XP fix but hey, I'll try anything to get this to work...
There's no difference wheter I'm running RDP from a 2003 SP2 or 2003 SP2 R2 and try to connect, still the same error: The remote computer requires Network Level Authentication, which your computer does not support.
Is the only way to connect to an w2k8 server today thru an PC running XP SP3!?!
Can't be!


FYI:
I will NOT, I repeat NOT, lower the security level on this 2008 server, or any other 2008 Server, and allow any version of RDP to connect.


Best regards
Chris

Hello CaleAccess,

Connecting to a 2008 server with NLA from W2K3 is not possible without downgrading the 2008 TS security level.  We are holding out hope that MS will address in SP3 but there is some doubt...  Visionapp will support NLA in their R2 release which you could then run on W2K3 but it is not yet released.
