Windows Server 2008 allow multiple remote connections (multiple remote users)

Hello,

I am using Windows Server 2008 R2. For connecting, I use remote desktop. I had no problem using remote desktop with Administrator account. But, I must also register several more user accounts for my clients. I've started with first one and added account to remote desktop users. When I tried to connect again with that account I've received:

Access denied for guest user

So what should I do now? I must say that for all my users I will use minimum permissions possible - all they will be allowed to do is running one program on the server.


Regards, Frenky

You need to add the users to the Remote Desktop Group on the local system

Only small notice: the only option I have is 'Allow log on through remote desktop'. All the rest is just like you've said. Well done, thanks a lot.

My apologies for that. As you (Vee_Mod & Mods) might or might not know I normally always Italize quoted text an add the link to the source. In this case I overlooked the latter.

So let's try to do it right this time:

You can do this using Local Security Policy. Click on Start and then click on Administrative Tools and then click on Local Security Policy. Then click on Local Policies and then User Rights Assignment. Then double click on “Allow log on through remote desktop” option. Then, under Local Security Setting tab, click on “Add User or Group” button, and then give the username or group name and click on OK. Then click on Apply and then OK.
