this sounds to be me like the computer has problems finding the domain
things like netbios names/logon server/domain etc

usually a broadcast is sent to find out who the PDC (or just any logon
server) for that domain, if you are doing NAT, I bet this broadcast
thing breaks. Its the same situation using routers between windows
networks... a solution for this is setting up a WINS server on the NT
servers and enter the IP of the wins server on all windows clients, this
may solve your problems..
