Recently installed OCS 2007 and everything seems to be working fine except when attempting to view members of a distribution group. I can add the group to the client with no issues; however I recieve the following error when attempting to view the members - "Use of the distribution group is restricted and requires specific permissions. Contact your system administrator to request the required permissions". Also an authentication box comes up when I first start the client. I'm an administrator on the domain.
Any thoughts as to where these permissions would be set? Oddly when I was out of the office working over a VPN connection I had no problem viewing the members.
Thanks in advance,

Also, I'm not being prompted for authentication, that part works fine for us.

I read through that page and everything looks ok on our end from what I can see. I'm not getting prompted for authentication like you were. Maybe it's a different issue.
