I have a user , that has extreme usage permissions due to some past indesrepancies , i want to give them access to OWA, but block them from using the remote desktop option in Remote web workspace. Is this possible, i dont see an option really to limit any one item on the remote web workspace pages, i was thinking of going into IIS and setting permissions to remote desktop page, but I'd like to hear some other option/opinions , Thanks

just take the user out of the rww user group - I think owa access should still work ok.

I went into IIS and played around with a couple permissions, and found that i could block users from the OWA page. So i'll use it like that, I will keep question open for a bit, if anyone has any other ideas, Would like to eliminate having to mess with IIS, as ive learned in the past messing around in there can muck up your entire RWW....
