How to let the users log on to their machine from home using remote desktop without them having to be administrators of their local machine?

Hello,

I am an administrator of a domain and the users connect from outside the network to their local computer using remote desktop. I created a gpo last night under the computer OU "Computer Configuration...Windows settings...Security Settings...Security Groups and added the Administrator and the domain admins in there. This morning i got a user telling me that she was unable to remotely log on last night to her machine because the local policy did not permit her to log on interactively.
Is there a way to let the users log on to their machine from home using remote desktop without them having to be administrators of their local machine?

You should add appropriate user account to local "Remote Desktop Users" group.

So i create a security group called "Remote Desktop Users" and put all the domain users in there and then put the security group in the GPO Security Groups?

That would allow all users to connect to all computer I doubt that is your intention. You should add only one user account to each local group "Remote Desktop Users" which already exists on each Windows XP machine.
