Repost: Unable to contact a DHCP server?

Hi everybody!
These messages have been found in the System log of the Event Viewer application.
These error messages have been generated after each logon attempt.
Although dial-in client have been connected to the host pc,
But client was unable to open the target host,
and its failure attempts have been recorded in the System log.
It seems that something must be configured on host,
which gives client more to provide in the authentication process.

"Unable to contact a DHCP server.
The Automatic Private IP Address --- will be assigned to dial-in clients.
Clients may be unable to access resources on the network."
"The user --- failed an authentication attempt due to the following reason:
The current configuration of the Internet Authentication Service (IAS) server only supports local user accounts."
Unfortunately I omitted IP address and username while copying them from Event Log,
and now those messages are deleted automatically due to Event Log size limit!
Both host and client use Windows XP Pro SP1,
Host is a stand-alone which is set up to accept incoming connections (no further configuration),
Client is dialing to host using the username & password created/provided while setting up incoming connections on host.
Please help! I'm trying to access my office and copy data to it from my home,
via XP's simple Incoming Connections & Shared Folders.
Otherwise I've got to use removable storage devices, exchanging data and project files.
Any help as any kind is greatly appreciated!
Time is gold, specially yours!
You may accept my gratitude!
