One time RDP session.

I have a need to create an remote session available for a consultant to do some work on my network. I want it to be as secure as possible and then remove it and prevent further access.

I have an SBS server but little other hardware avalaible. Can I put a VM on SBS? Join it to the domain. Setup Remote Work Place with an account delete VM and account after use?

Thank you

Give him access to your lap/desktop instead of to the SBS (or a VM on the SBS).
Use RDP, or another remote tool to setup a connection to your desk/lt. Teamviewer for example is also a solution if it's running on your desktop/laptop....

Since it's a one or two time thing, i would fix it like this....

Also, give him a personal admin account (not defeault domain administrator account). and remove or at least disable it afterwards..

OK that sparks an idea. I have 2 old laptops lying around. Those can be used connected to the wireless (any probelms here or hardwire?)

He can have whatever local access he wants on that machine. After he is done machine is put back on the shelf maybe wiped even.

So routing the connection to the machine with no other access to applications other than what I give him. I have a domain and can do some port type thing through the firewall. My idea falls apart at this point.

I hate that I am so untrusting but it comes down to price (reputation) vs risk. I am trying to balance the two.

Connecting with Wireless is in theory no problem.
If your wireless is stable and has connection to all the places he have to go..

When he also needs to change network settings, it would be handier to give a wired connection (since wired network is connected automatically physically when you plug it in.

The access on the temp laptop doesnt matter, since your wiping it anyway afterwards....

You can give him access by a forward on your firewall to the local laptop.  Or, what i would personally do, use a temporary Teamviewer account, where he gets a temp login to the machine....

The nice thing with Teamviewer is that you easily watch on the screen what's happening. NOrmal RDP cannot do this... Probably you can if you use some of the MS i need help tools (i'm not familiair with it).

Good luck

Great idea. Teamviewer seems to be just what I needed.
