Add them to the local "Remote Desktop Users" group of that server.

Open Group Policy. gpedit.msc

Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Local Policies > User Rights Management > Allow Log on through Terminal Services.

Add username of the person you want to connect remotely.

Enable Remote Desktop on the server and in the window 'Select Remote User' add the user you want to give access to.

I think using the group I quoted works by assigning that User Right.

nope it wont work by just enabling it on My Computer Properties.

It will work on Windows Client like XP, but not on a Windows Server 2003 Environment.

Please do correct me If I am wrong.(based on experienced)

where is the user configured?
It clearly works if the user is in the user group on the windows 2003 server. Alternatively if the Win2K3 server is in domain, you can add the domain users too. By default the local login user (generally the administrator of the server ) has access to the RDP. please test if you are able to get the RDP access through administrator of the server

I am referring to a Windows 2003 Domain Environment.


but anyway TS. their solutions using only Properties after that test, if it wont then try mine. :)

Tried it to users member of a domain, to remotely access specific domain,  their name are on the RDP properties, but a not go. going to Local Policy fixed the problem.
