    Server admin not connecting..

    Hi, can anyone help here? - Suddenly I am unable to use Server admin from a remote Mac!

    This happened suddenly last Friday, using it OK then 30 mins later, no deal!
    Error is "The login information is incomplete for this server or is not valid" etc.

    Can VNC to server (from PC) and can login and use Server Admin on the server OK with same login details though...
    Also can use WGM from either remote Mac or server, no problem.
    Tried IP address and dns name , all login info is correct.
    Firewall not enabled on server either.
    Any ideas or things to check, Mac people?

    cheers..
