Untangle Server Not Recognizing one windows 7 machine

Last Modified: 2013-03-19
Our in house network has about 6 computers all windows 7 except 2 that are XP. We have an untangle server setup with different rack levels for different user access. As well as SBS 2008 R2 running our domain, the group policies seems to be applying for everyone just fine and untangle slots the user into the appropriate access level.

On one of the windows 7 Ultimate machines for some reason even though the policy seems to be applying correctly to the user and machine as far as i can tell.  the untangle server is not recognizing the machine or user and is blocking them from most websites and such is hindering productivity.

It does not matter who logs on to the machine it is still not being registered. I have tried forcing the group policy, running SFC scan,  checked the group policy and a plethora of other things,

Any kind of suggestions or wild idea's would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to have to do a clean install on this machine and re install all of the necessary software.

Let me know if there is any information you want or need!

Thanks much!
