I would like to use the terminal services to let a remote user use a specific program (and only that program and nothing else) over a dial up connection,
could you help me in setting this service up?

You have the possibily to run a application instead of loading the full server desktop. For complete instructions please let me know the Terminal Client version. Windows CE, RDP5.0 or RDP5.1.

You could do that scripting the Terminal Services Advanced Client.

Configure the RDP protocol for execute cetain program when an user logs in. But this configuration is for ALL users.

Install Citrix Metaframe XP.

-This is very easy to setup..Here's an example.
-Open active directory users and computers or the local accounts mmc (where ever the user account is).
-Click on the environment tab in the properties of the users account.
-check "start the following program at logon"
-Program to start  type c:\winnt\notepad.exe
-Start in type c:\winnt
-try it.. If the user still gets a desktop, its because the matching tab in the properties of the RDP protocol in the terminal services configuration mmc has the option "override user profile settings" checked.

Housenet, you are right, but that way allow the user to start allways the same program, isn't it?
If you need flexibility, I mean, allow the user to start several apps, you have to script the TSAC or use Citrix.
Hope this helps.

AndresM, I understand your point, but since S2 said;
"to let a remote user use a specific program (and only that program and nothing else)" ;I though my answer was best. Heres the problem I have with your idea.. I you ever check how much licencing costs for an ts app server with metaframe 1.8 ? we're talking new car prices here & my idea corst $0 extra.

Housenet: thanks, I just want to know your opinion. And you are right, Metaframe 1.8 is very-very expensive.
