problems with rdesktop.. can anyone help

When I use rdesktop to try to connect to my windows box, I get the standard Windows logon. I enter my admin password, and I get an error message that says.. "You are attempting to connect back to your own computer. Operation is not allowed."

I only get this message when I use rdesktop for linux.. If I use an RDC client on a windows box, I can log in just fine.

Any ideas?

any luck?

I have recently been trying to RDC from my SuSE9.3 at home to my WinXP box at work. I can open a pptp tunnel but have had no luck with KRDC or rdesktop. I was just wondering if you had any luck.
