Hi,

I am new to Terminal Services. My company runs a Small Business Server, and also has a Windows 2003 Server on which is installed Terminal Services, and a particular application I want TS users to access. However I want to restrict most users from accessing anything else on the network, other than e-mail from thew SBS, but including the C, D & E drives on the Windows 2003 server. However the application they need to access is located in Program Files, but doesn't need to be. I am conscious that our network and business must not be compromised, so any help on security, setting up, etc., would be most welcome

If you hide the local drives (recommended) the users can still access their programs.  This basically means that they can access the local drives but not browse to them through explorer.  The document that Jay Jay provided is also a very good read.  Take a look at the documents and let me know if you have any follow up questions:

SamuraiCrow my aploogies. This is the first time I have used Experts Exchange, and I intended splitting the points, as your info added another dimension on to what Jay Jay provided me, but I didn't realise that I had to hit the Split Points button before accepting the answer. Don't know how to make amends, but I don't think this will be the last time I need to help, so maybe I can make it up to you in future.

Cheers
