Different Permissions for Users using Remote Desktop versus when connected locally to the system.

I have an executive who wants to give the users in his department different permissions when they log on through remote desktop versus when they are logged on locally at the officee.  This seems like a crazy request and doesn't even seem possible.

For example, there is a directory that only his department can access using a security group when they are logged in remotely as well as remotely, but I don't see how I could make this different when they are remote.

Any ideas?

There is no way to do specifically what you are asking using permissions. The NTFS security checks don't care how the user is connected to server.

You could use alternate usernames for the users and deny the regular user accounts Remote Desktop access. Then you could tailor the permissions as you ask. (i.e. only add the alternate usernames in the 'Remote Desktop Users' local group)
