I want to be able to stop a user of rdp/teminal service connection from closing the connection without logging off. If this can be done via code then this is better - if it can be done by other means (that do not involve third party) then please can you help.

You can set a local policy to remove the disconnect option from the start menu:

Hi

A user can still ALT F4 or X the RDP window. I would suggest you edith your terminal server settings so that when users disconnect their sessions, those sessions get logged off immediatly.

This is a option within terminal server.

Hope this helps.

How do you do this - this seems to be the answer.

pxj05,

I will tell you how you do that:

Log in op de terminal server
start 'Terminal Services Configuration'
Right click RDP-TCp, click 'Properties'
Go to tabblad Sessions.

There you are, select 'Override user settings', Then select a time @ End a disconnected Session.

Hope this helps!
