-Is there a firewall enabled on the windows 2003 server or one in between the two systems?

-Did you install converter onto the 2003 server or running it from a 3rd system?

Ok I figured out the problem with that first error. which was caused by the agent on the server.
I removed the converter agent and reinstalled it remotely using vmware converter.

now i am stuck on the ready to complete section.

the error is " a specific parameter was not correct. targetdiskparams.volumecloningparams.sourcevolumeId"

Could you help with this error? thanks
