I've got a WinXP box that I'm trying to RDP to, and it keeps giving me the following error:

The local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively.
  • He's in BUILTIN\Administrators
  • RDP is enabled
  • Local security policy has Administrators and Remote Desktop Users allowed for Terminal Services
  • Only ASPNET is denied for Terminal Services

Any ideas?

An account with a blank passwd will do this.
