I am having an issue with RDP to SBS 2008. When trying to log from some XP machines I get an invalid username/password error.

The credentials I am using are correct, and it doesnt matter what account I use
We have upgraded to the most current Remote Desktop Client, and set the security in SBS 2008 to the lowest setting as per articles on the web. Yes we still cant get in.

SBSDomain\UserName
My passw0rd!

Or:

UserName@SBSDomain
My passw0rd!
