We have a terminal server in our organization that we would like to only have a few people access. How would we be able to make the this restriction? I was thinking that we would have to take local user group access away except for those specified users, but I wanted to clarify with the experts first. Thanks in advance.

You are correct. The "Remote Desktop User" or "Terminal Server User" is normally a group pre-defined when you setup a Windows server. You would simply make sure that the remote users are in the Remote Desktop Group.

Below is a link with alot of information regarding setting up a remote user
