RDP Lock down to one application
Posted on 2014-01-30
I am wanting to give an user access to one application on a system over WAN. I was planning on setting up RDP access for that purpose, but need to restrict access to just one application and its associated files, and prevent the users from being able to access all other files or applications.
What would be the best way to go about that ?
Doing it using User permissions / groups seems like a really messy way to do it as even a user only assigned only with Remote Desktop Users can still access all of the applications and much of the files. The other option would be to setup another TS 'server' computer with just the required client software on it and run it as a client to the server, but would be more convenient if I could just have him log into the server and restrict him to one application on the actual server as it saves the hassle of needed another machine / client to update etc.
Also the server is space limited so setting up some kind of virtual machine on the server isn't' really an option.
