My company has a published remote app that users used to run a program on our terminal server.  Currently the user can log in by clicking on the desktop icon for the remote app or connect to the terminal server through the old terminal server connection method and run the application.
Is it possible to deny remote desktop access to members of a user group but the user can still run the application through the published app. approach?
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

There isn't a out of the box way to make this happen. But there are some workarounds possible. I have done this once by creating a script that is executed and direct runs logoff.exe

There are also ways to use group policy or applocker to accomplish this. These threads might help:
