Hello,
I have a 2008 Windows Server Standard. I am looking to force any pc mainly our windows 7 ones, to enable remote desktop so we can get into it need be. Also is there a setting where we can call out domain admins only have access for example? I seen a couple of settings under group policy but it seemed to have more to do with customizing the actual connection properties.

If we do find a policy to run on remote desktop for the admins, is there also a policy i need to set to allow remote desktop through the windows firewall then or will it happen automatically since we are allowing remote desktop. Thanks!
