Error:

"The connection was denied because the user account is not authorized for remote login."

I have created the user, to what i believe to be correct, same settings as the other users, just cannot get them to login.

i dont have that specific group, but i did check in the remote operators and remote workplace and the user is listed.
Also the user is a member of the domain users, which has remote rights.

I have copied the exact same users as the current users in the system.  Very confused on what the glitch is..

You say that "Allow Access" is ticked on the Dial-In tab, yet in your screen shots, you're showing us the Remote Control properties, not the Dial In Properties.  These are different, and Remote Control properties are not Dial In properties.

However, could you confirm that DIal-In is set to "Allow"?

Then can you confirm exactly how your user is trying to connect, what they are trying to connect to, and exactly when you get the error message.  We may then be able to determine exactly what setting is wrong.

I Said Tab: Dail-in, not Remote control. Check that Tab, i bet the setting is there.

I am sorry i am not sure how to do what you are asking.   Can you explain more?

Example:
From my computer which runs outside of the internal network (running vista)
I can connect to the server with all current users setup prior to the new one i have setup
I am connecting using Remote Desktop Connection

The server is running Terminal Services

OK, so assuming you have a connection to the remote network, and an IP address on that network, then ensure that on the server, the users permitted to remote control the server includes this new user.

Right Click "Computer" on the server, select Properties, Select the Remote tab, and click the "Select Users" button.  Ensure the new user is listed there, or a group that the User is a member of is listed there.

How have you setup these users? Have you created via the wizard or in AD?
How do you connect to your TS remotely?
Have you checked under in the computers tab on standard console and see if remote access is enabled for that computer?

If you copy a user that can login succesfully and let the new user use this new (copied) account, does it work then?
