Hi,

I have a domain user who can't RDP from a specific Windows XP machine into a Windows Server 2003 with Terminal Server running. I'm getting error message "The system could not log you one, make sure the user and password are correct".

I tried the following;
- changed the user's password
- changed the xp computer name
- changed the xp ip address
- created new test user on AD, also not accepted
- restarted both DC and TS Server

Any ideas is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Have you added that user to remote desktop users group? / have a remote access group to be accepted?

The user has been member of RDP user group.
I figured it out, when the user is on RDP session login prompt, the shift key doesn't work. What a silly problem, I spend so much time troubleshooting and thought so deep.

Thank you anyway.
