I have a 2003 Terminal Server. I want to allow four users to log in and have local desktop access only.
No internet
No printing
No copying
No access to anything outside of the pdf that will be available on the desktop.

And I want to attach a two hr limit to these users session from when they first log on.

Currently I have removed the server from our domain. And was hoping I can control this via a local policy.

Please advise.
Thanks - sjmp

You can setup either user PROFILE or via GROUP POLICY for these users to "Run this program at logon":

"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\acroRd32.exe" "\\10.10.10.123\shares\files\document.pdf"

This will open just PDF all over desktop, and if either remote session is closed, or document closed, in both cases terminal session logs-off.
You can also play with Adobe settings to display particular page of document, or navigational menu on or off etc:
