Hey there, we have a terminal server with 15 users on it.  The users access it from different computers/locations throughout the day.  How can we set the  'experience' to 'low speed broadband' or '56K' through group policy at the head end so we do not need to chase their RDP client settings around to different computers.  Perhaps this is not done through GP?

you can configure colour depth and turn off the desktop background under

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Remote Session Environment

This needs to be set in a GPO applied to the session host, not the clients.

Beyond this, i'm not sure this is something that can easily be enforced via policies. My best suggestion is to create an RDP file with the required settings and distribute this to the PCs.
