How can I grant a normal user access to a SBS server using RWW

Hi All,
I installed a SBS 2003 server with RWW (Remote Web Workplace) etc. Everything is working fine. I can Access clients, servers and e-mail.

I know what I want is not common practice and I would never advise this to a customer, but I need a way for a user (= a NON admin account) to access the SBS Server.
When I log in (RWW) as an administrator I get the options 'Connect to Server Desktop' and 'Connect to client desktop'. When I login as a user, I only see the 'Connect to client Desktop' option.

It is possible to connect (as a user) to the SBS Server using TS client (mstsc.exe); That's not the problem. I have some users however for whom this is to complex.....

I found some articles (also here on experts-exchange), but not an answer so far. Can anyone tell me if this is really not possible by design ? Or is there a work around ?

Thanks an regards,
Gerard Verbruggen

    Having your users open mstsc and enter all the information may be too much for them, but what about you doing it and saving the information for them so they just open the file and it connects?
    The only way I know of being able to view serves under RWW is to be an administrator.
    I hope this helps. Good luck.

    Yep; I know that one. I'm going to wait anothr 24 hours to see if someone knows how to do this. Otherwise there's no other option I guess.

    I believe I answered your question by stating that only administrators can see servers using RWW.
