How do I disable various networking apps?
Posted on 2008-10-04
First-time asker here, trying to find some info and this seemed like the right place to go.
I have a PC (not a server) here at my IT job that I want to remove access to networking applications - FTP, RDP, Telnet, SSH, and xWindows. This is to make the PC totally secure when coworkers connect remotely from abroad.
Is there a way to do this in Windows? I'm concerned that if I download some external tool that its network activity will disrupt the work that is to be done on this PC (constant back-and-forth communication with another server for about an hour at a time). I'm convinced that it did so when I tried using Comodo software.
Is this something I could set up through Group Policy? I simply don't want these applications to start.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
