Remote desktop connection cannot verify the identity of the computer

If you get the following error: "Remote desktop connection cannot verify the identity of the computer that
you want to connect to. try reconnecting to the windows-based computer or
contatct your administrator."

when trying to connect OS X to a Windows Machine via RDP then do the following:

1) Delete all files in /user/{username}/Documents/RDC Connections
2) Don't fill in the domain text box

for some reason when using the Mac client if the domain text box is filled then the Windows machine at the other end can't authenticate the connection. Seems to be worse with Vista, but I have read of this happening with 2003 also.

Odd, I always have the domain filled in and have no issues!

Ecommerce and offshore software development are burgeoning trends these days and several India-based offshore software development companies have gained reputation for offering excellent services to the clientele throughout the world. However, it would be extremely advantageous for you to assign your software development project to one of the popular India-based company because services offered by Indian software companies are cost-effective and flexible that ensure future growth and transparency.http://www.eberrymedia.com

Great subject. I have been playing around with the idea of the comment structure recently.

The popular comment layout is common, so it is easily recognized when scanning to post a comment. If the comment section is in a different format, then I am going to spend more time trying to decipher what everything means.
