The Error: The connection cannot be completed because the remote computer that was reached is not the one you specified. This could be caused by an outdated entry in the DNS cache. Try using the IP address of the computer instead of the name.

Make sure the time on the target server is accurate. It has to be within 5 minutes of the DC usually or servers and workstations start to act funny, though it should be exact. I corrected the time on my newly reformatted target server (2008 not R2) and immediately connected afterwards from my Win7 PC.
