I know how to give remote access to the machine. What I'm trying to come up with, is a way to keep internal access to this PC for administration, but yet block this machine from access internal resources, like servers, PCs, printers, etc.. when they remote to it.

Create OU on you domain.
Also create GPO based on what you want to achieved.
Assign the GPO to the OU.

The two statements are exactly conflicting

When you said that you required machine access for administration, why you want to restrict access to resources, I mean then how you can do administration with machine ?

Mahesh: restrict the person remotely connecting only access to the machines resources and it is still connected to our LAN, so we can manage. Kind of like creating an ACL in a router, to let traffic in but yet controlling where it can go.

Ok
Got it
So in that case you if you have windows firewall between your servers and that client machine, then only its possible to restrict him to that workstation only

The ideally the client machine should be kept in DMZ network (If you have one) so that most of the resource access is already getting blocked and remaining you can put more firewall rules so that only required resources can be accessed by client machine

I like this idea, but wandering how much of pain it will be, since our router and firewall are all managed be our service provider.

If it is managed by service providers, you can ask him for required workstation access and port restrictions etc and he can do that for you

You only need to tell him what exactly the requirement and how would you want to access client system from internet \ intranet.
