Problems Restarting Service on Windows Server 2003 SP2

I have built a service (framework 1.1) and deployed to a Windows Server 2003 SP2.

The service runs fine but I need the ability to restart the service from within my application running on a client.

I have the code in place to do so but get an error when attempting to access the services on the server. The same code works great when restarting the service on an XP workstation.

I have read that SP2 on Windows Server 2003 has increased the security and no longer allows all users access to this functionality but I cannot figure out how change this to allow specific users to restart a service.

Does anyone know which permission etc to change to allow user(s) access to restart services?
