Hi,
I have a server(win2k server) that has 3 network cards. 1 goes to the outside world(internet) the other 2 go to routers and switches in the intern network.
Users that sign on to the server (win2k server) through remote desktop connection have to get access to only the 2 network cards that go to the intern network. In other words they would get access to change the local network connection properties meaning IP and that sort of thing.
How do I do this? thanx

Win2k server does'nt have remote desktop.

Are you asking how to stop people from changing the network connection properties of the NIC's?

I'm with bubz0r-- I'm not sure what you are asking. I am assuming that you mean that users are using Terminal Services to access this 3-legged box? Is this for remote administration or are users term'ing in to get to an application? If you need to restrict access to the network cards, you can use the MMC Snap-in and create a GPO and navigate to:  User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Network and Dial-up Connections and configure Prohibit access to properties of LAN connection. Bear in mind this restrict admins only as Non-administrators are already prohibited from accessing properties of components for a LAN connection regardless of this policy.

Hope this helps.

The server is using terminal services indeed and the users sign on with an rdp client, that was what i meant.
The users that sign on have to have access to these network connection properties so they can change ip's and remotely work with different routers and switches applications...I need only that the connection to the outside world to stay as it is ofcourse. This can be done by changing things in the register, but i can not get it entirely right as I want it to be. I'm asking if there is another way maybe an easier way.....i hope this explains everything better
thanx
