Hi,
    I run an office and we have a Server - client Network we setup active directory users and computers and installed all attributes for terminal services. The problem I'm having is trying to connect one of the computers running windows XP Pro. in the office to the server using Remote Desktop Connection and its logging into the server log on screen but says Invalid User name  and or password. When i log in that same user on a vista machine or windows 7 machine its working fine. Can someone help?

There's no logical reason that the XP system shouldn't do it - when I have problems like this, I verify the keyboard is working properly - type the password in the username box and verify that you're typing it properly - sometimes the keyboard's Shift, Alt, or CTRL keys stick.  Sometimes the sticking is intermittent.

Do you have the latest version of RDC for XP? I believe 7 is the latest.

You might try turning CAPS lock on. I've had a couple instances where the remote connection was somehow switching the upper and lower cases.

How is RDP set up? When you click on the link whats shown in the username field before you connect? Do you want them to logon with a domain account. If so this should be either then user principle name or a name of the form "domain\loginid".
