Some more research. Removing the firewall doesnt change anything, so i 
dont think the firewall is causing my problem. I re-checked the windows 
server, and saw its a SP3 box, my lab-Server had sp4. I'll check again 
with an sp3 lab-server.

But so far, i'm still stuck with the following error:

root# net rpc join -U administrator -w DOMAIN -S WINDOWS-DC
[2004/03/11 16:51:54, 0] utils/net_rpc_join.c:net_rpc_join_newstyle(326)
   Error domain join verification (reused connection): 

Unable to join domain DOMAIN.

Joining with "net ads join..." works, but then wbinfo fails again.
