Hello all,

I have my GPO for the 3 remote only users, almost perfect. Whats left is the most important (of course).

 I have given them a start menu that allows only logoff and a clear desktop. What I want to add is one program that they can access.

HELP!!

In the GPO expand User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ System Open the policy named Run Only Allowed Windows Applications Enable the policy and click Show

Click Add and type the executable name for each program you want to *allow* the user to run

Once the policy is applied, the user will only be able to run the programs you specified and no others. Unless you have allowed them access to the command prompt cmd however, in which case they can run pretty much anything if they can find it.

Other apps will still show up, but they won't be able to run them.

I am sorry...I worked out what I needed on my own. With no response it slipped my mind that this was still open.

My goal was to have three users have remote access to one program only on my lone server. I also needed them to have the ability to logoff to disconnect the session and not leave them open all the time. I did not want access to any other settings, files, or programs. In fact I didn't even want them to see anything else. This is what I did and has worked so far.

I had to create a Group that held those three remote users.

I then created a GPO for that group.

Next I disabled EVERYTHING except logoff on the start menu.

Then I cut and pasted the icon for the program I wanted them to access into their desktop folder under Documents and settings on the server.

I of course gave them rights to this program.
