Hi ,

Do you have any suggestions on how to restrict user log on access to a terminal server ?

Scenario:

For instance if a public ip is pointing to a terminal server and an authenticated user can log onto the server from anywhere via remote desktop . We want only specified computers to able to log onto the terminal server so that not just anyone can log on using a public computer even though their credentials is correct .

You can do this in your router - restrict the RDP Port 3389 to specific inbound IP Addresses - assuming your computers that you want to connect all have static IP addresses on their broadband services.

Hi ,

Thanks for the feedback but this is not what we want . We are looking more in the lines of a certificate generated and installed on the specified computers . If it's possible .

You can change the default port 3389 to another higher port, it should help a bit. Another solution would be to implenet a VPN/SSLVPN, which would be a prefferd method of restricting user access.
