Limiting RDP access to one program and a directory in Server 2008 Enterprise
Posted on 2011-05-10
We are currently running a Windows 2008 Enterprise Domain Controller.
We are wanting to establish a User profile that will limit a username to open one Quickbooks file and have access to one directory for uploading and downloading.
We are wanting to have the user login through RDP and either scenarios to happen:
Scenario 1 -
User logs in
Quickbooks launches and opens company file
User sees QB open and asking for a password (because QB asks it)
User only has access to this one program & file with no other options except the following
User has 1 directory "only" on their desktop that they can save and retrieve files from.
User has permissions to utilize local pc peripherals for printing
User logs in
Their deskop opens and all they see is a QB company file
They have permission to open that file and run Quickbooks
They also see a directory
They have access to that directory to read, save, delete, and retrieve
I have created users, and setup the AD Environment to automatically open the file. Symptom, the user logs in and sees the desktop, no program runs. I would prefer scenario 1 but scenario 2 would be a good second option.
Thank you for any help/direction you can give for this issue.
