VPN Connection for contractors with a standard VPN Profile.

Currently we provide contractors with an AD account and then we set them up with a special group to allow connectivity. They receive a profile from the VPN router that has the ACLs. Creating these profiles for each user is not practical.
We would like to give the contractors group access to one single terminal server which they can connect to through a standard VPN profile. Once connected we would like a software that could be configured to allow the different users to the different servers they need access too.  
We just want to stream line the process so it does not include the network team’s involvement.

sounds like a plan. whats your question?

also consider creating a small number of generic users that you can provide to contractors as required. You can change the password whenever you need to and just give it to another contractor as required.

Question is how can I go about doing this? Is there maybe a jump host software that can be used, or can windows Firewall accomplish this?

what youre describing is built in so should be easy enough.
Assuming you know how to set up a single generic VPN profile already, just limit this VPN to access your terminal server only.
You can then create users in AD and can control which servers they have access to using group policies or by specifying which computers they can log onto in the AD user account properties.
