Windows 7: MSTSC Remote Authentication Error

MSTSC Remote Authentication Error

From any workstation I can MSTSC to the servers except one. Be it the server name or the server ip address in our domain I get "An authentication error has occurred. The requested security package does not exist"

We have Domain Controller, Term Servers, Print Server and so forth however I cannot get to the Nav Server because of this error. I can log in at the server as admin thus one would think RDP would work. Thanks....
