Greetings.
 
Server OS : Win 2k Server

When i use Romote Terminal Services (RTS) from Win 2k Pro within LAN, there will be authentication to enter the password. So, the user need to enter username and password.

But if i dial up from Internet  and connect using RTS to the same Win 2k Server, it will auto-logon using a valid default username (tlsinternetuser) and password. It will not ask to enter password.

How to force the user to enter username and password if they connect from Internet? Otherswise, it will be a disaster if everyone can login without any authentication..

Thanks in advance.

To Make Changes to the Automatic Logon Information

Click Start, point to Programs, point to Terminal Services Client, and then click Client Connection Manager.
Click the connection you want to change.
On the File menu, click Properties.
On the General tab, under Log on automatically with this information, type a new user name, password, or domain name.

I think you want to modify the way the terminal SERVER behaves.

By default, a Windows 2000 Server Terminal Services connection always prompts for a password, even if you've configured one in the connection logon information of the client. To contol this behavior:

Start the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Terminal Services Configuration snap-in
(Start, Programs, Administrative Tools, Terminal Services Configuration).
Right-click the configuration for which you want to modify the default password setting
Select Properties from the context menu.
Select the Logon Settings tab.
Note the "Always prompt for password" check box. Check this box to always prompt for a password.
Click Apply, then click OK.
Close the dialog box. Future connections should be forces to make a password entry, which will defeat automatic logon.

I would also check the username and make sure there IS a password!
