Dear experts

I would like to find a way for users who work with remote desktop on terminal server to start remote desktop everytime the turn on their computers and automatically connect them on the TS site. Also when they log off from the TS the system would automatically shut down their computers.

Any ideas?

Thanks

You can create a logon scrip to launch a configured RDP file when it first boots up or you can add the configured RDP file under start up items.

Ok this i did and is working fine.

Is there any way to shut down the computer automatically when the user logs off from the TS session?

Create a bat file:

shutdown -f -m \\ClientnameorIP -r -t 5
shutdown -l

-r will restart the clients computer

Perfect , but how do i call this batch file to run automatically when the user logs off from the TS session?

I dont want the user to be able to use the local computer at all, thats why i want the computer to shut down automatically when the users logs off from the terminal session
