Default Project 2003 Client Cannot Connect - PWA ok

I have created a test environment, restoring wss, projectserver and
associated databases. Prior to restoring databases i could connect to
projectserver just fine.

Now that i have restored databases i get the following message.

"Cannot connect. Project was unable to establish a connection with the
selected Project Server. This could be caused by a loss of network

I have seen a number of posts in the groups but i have not seen any
solutions to this problem. As mentioned prior to copying data between server
everything was just fine. I ran EditSite and everything tested out ok.

Everything appears to work fine through PWA. I did notice however that the
groups for my Administrator account are disabled so that i cannot modify
them. Clue maybe? I am not sure whey those groups are disabled so that i
cannot apply them to my administrator account.
I do have another Test account that has admin rights but I cannot connect
with that account either. I am using Project Authentication.

Any help is appreciated.

ps. I did order a set of project admin manuals by the MVP's that often help
and post information here.

Just a few thoughts.

Authentication so i should not have to worry about authentication with a

I did create new project server accounts to see if that worked any better.
So, I am still stuck. I checked to make sure than Project type services were

Anyone have any ideas?

I had the same problem. By installing Project professional with service pack 1, the problem was fixed. Service pack versions in server and clinet probably should be same.
