We have vpn setup now for remote users to connect to the network when away. I want to make sure they are not accessing the network with Remote Web Workplace from the outside, and only using vpn.
How do I ensure they cannot connect with RDP or Remote Web Workplace and yet still connect with VPN?

One easy way would be to close the ports off on your firewall.

If you run the Connect to the Internet Wizard in your Server Manager under To Do List you can turn off access to the areas you don't want.

You can also block port access but this would also stop you from being able to access it remotely for administration purposes should the VPN not work for some reason.

Just remember if you block port 443 this also blocks OWA
