Terminal Services Server

Hello Experts,

It's my first time to setup a TS Server in an application mode with thin clients. However, I have installed the TS licensing and created a connection to the TS server from the thin client.
I don't want the users to see the TS Server desktop when they establish a connection.
How can I secure that issue? taking into consideration this TS Server is an application Server and a SQL server too.
I mean. if I created an OU and moved the TS Server to the OU in order to apply GPO I think it'll be a risk for the other domain users since other domain users are not TS users but they are just using an application which was installed prior to the TS installation.
The company will not approve an additional member server for me.

Please advice

There are a couple of things you can do but these easiet is to go into Terminal Service Configuration.  Go the environment tabe and set up a specific program to launch.  This will cause all users who connect via RDP to launch this program.  I thknk this should meet your requirements.

Snowsurfer,

This configuration will not help. Because I'm using a connection too to shadwo their connection remotely when supporting their issues. Besides, that I want them to be able to run 2 applications.

Perhaps a work around will be to setup each user's account and I don't want to deal with that.

Can you advice if I can find a Terminal Services ADM file to add it to the GPO OU of the TS?

If you set up each users account you will have the same issue.  You may want to look into Citrix.  You can also download the XP RDP client from MSFT and install that.  Then you can create two connections and save them both to the desktop.  Each one can be configured to launch a different app.

The clients are WinCE not WinXP and I create a connection using RDP which is built in with WinCE.
However, I think that I will end up creating 2 seperate connection for each application.
BTW: if you my company will approve a Member Server, I would rather go for it than Citrix, don't you agree?

I appreciate your time but I won't be able to give points. Please keep thinking.
Any one else over there...
