Terminal Server - "The identity of the remote computer can not be verified..."

I get this message when people connect to our terminal server:

"The identity of the remote computer can not be verified. Do you want to connect anyway?"

Can someone please introduce me to the source of the problem and give me guide how to solve this? (I suppose this has somethign to do with certificates, tho I haven't touched that before.)

As the message itself says:
This problem can occur if the remote computer is running a version of Windows that is earlier than Windows Vista, or if the remote computer is not configured to support server authentication.

I guess you won't get that message when connecting to Server 2008 (R2) TS?

The server is 2k3 R2.

How can I prevent this from happening?

Go to the advanced tab and select always connect, even if authentication fails in the drop down, or add a DWord registry entry AuthenticationLevelOverride with value 0 to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client

Well, yes, I know that myself. Tho is there a way to do something similar on the server-side?

Maybe a group policy, or configure your terminal server for TLS authentication as described in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/895433
