Selecting security group for 3rd party remote access

Hi

I'm trying to set up a user for a 3rd party company as they need to install and configure their software remotely.  I've had a look through the default groups but am unsure which is the best to use - I want them to be able to install their software but not change anything in AD.  They should also be able to create folders and set the security.

Is there a group already for this purpose?

Thanks for your help

There isnt really a group by default for that exact purpose, you would need to invest some time and a little effort in making and testing a reliable one. If this is just a one off job, then i would suggest installing VNC (www.realvnc.com). Set this up on your box and forward the port you choose (for vnc in its config - default 5900) to it as well on your router.

With VNC you can watch what the person who is logged in is doing interactively so you can properly supervise the installation by just watching the server's screen. If it doesnt have a screen VNC also supports multiple connections which can be set to be treated as shared connections.
