It's used if you are running the server as an unpriviliged user w/o permissions to impersonate. 'Use local users instead of domain' makes the machine behave as if it's not part of a domain. It doesn't affect sspi directly (its mostly used for pserver). Unfortunately the OS doesn't tell you much about why authentication can fail. Provided the user exists on the system & the password is correct it will usually succeed. Tony
