1. install terminal server..
2. point to the licensing server (or install one)

security is depending on the application! NTFS is always a good start ;o)

It is fairly easy to configure your TS to be running in App mode (basically a tick box), see link below.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306626

Then you need to add licences to the Terminal Service Licencing Server (can be the TS itself)

Install your applications on the server, and configure RDP on clients.

I don't think you can stop user running applications via TS. Each TS user has his/her own profile in the Terminal Server (therefore, his/her own desktop icons), so if you don't want userA to run ProgramA, don't create the icon shortcut on his desktop.

If you are talking about restricting user access to folders/files you can simply user NTFS permissions.

Free Tool: IP Lookup

Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

citrix is so simular but still the same..

citrix is based on TS technology (or the other way around) You need to install citrix on the box instead of terminal server application mode.

in citrix you can install application and publish it for some users only, restrict others from accessing the same, manage users properties, etc
by terminal service in application mode is it possible to do the same ? I feel NTFS permission is not easy like how you can do it by citrix

yeah that's the problem with Terminal Service and that's why you pay so much for Citrix

In the folder where the application is stored, you can assign NTFS permission to those users that you want to grant access to; for those you want to restrict access, take away all their permissions on that folder.
