Remote desktop error!



When i try to use remote desktop to connect to my XP pro
machine I will receive an error message: The local policy
of this system does not permit you to logon interactively

I have added that account to the remote desktop group also
the allow remote connection box is checked, even thou the
account is a member of admin group, it still canot logon
This machine recently has been upgraded from 2000 to XP

Thanks for any help-Rob

You need to add the Remote Desktop users group to the "Allow logon
through Terminal Services" User Rights Assignment (via Group Policy -
gpedit.msc => Computer Configuration => Security Options....)
