I want to try to secure my Terminal Server
a little more.  I don't like the fact that
someone who knows my IP could connect to
my terminal server and try to login.

A fried told me it's possible to have terminal
server (or Win2kserver) accept only a specific
IP when connecting.  He said I should do it
through the Local Security Policy.  I looked
into it and became very confused.  Can someone
outline how I should accomplish this?

If you use the IP security rules in the Local Security policy, you are using IP SEC.  You would be better off putting an access list with the allowed IP on your router.  That way you could allow only certain IP's access to port 3389.

instead.
