Restricting access

Hello;


I am trying to determine if there is a way to restrict
who can log onto terminal server on a per machine basis?

Thanks

Lee

do you mean which machines they can terminal in from, or which Terminal Servers they can log into?  (no to the first, but yes to the second)

The consensus here is that the only way you could do that is by blocking network communications from the "bad" locations, through a firewall or other such means.  We can think of no way of selectively accepting and refusing some terminal services connections here-- Anyone else have any ideas?

You could create a login script that is executed only when logging on to that server (ie in startup folder or enter in "Run" section in registry)

There is a variable that gives you the machine name of the actual user rather than the terminal server. You could use this to identify the machine then run a program to logoff the user if they are not using a valid machine.
