We have a server that gets accessed thru VPN.
When a user connects it is able to access all local resources.

I only want them to start an RDP connection to one of the internal servers.
I don't want them to create netbios connections to the internal servers. (net use e.d.)

I  want to block netbios connections for a certain ip range..
How can I achieve this with the Windows Server 2008 firewall?

Thanks in advance!
Clyde.

just provide your IP range and you will need to block TCP destination port for port 139 & port 445 on the Windows 2008 firewall.

You can disable on the VPN connection as well. What type of VPN are you using?

Thanks Curua2008.

I switched the local and remote ip range in the firewall so that why it didn't work. After the change everything worked fine.
