Remote Desktop Connection - Windows 2008 R2 server

Hello

I want to give access to 2 users in the domain server 2008 R2 by Remote Desktop Connection. I want to configure this with Read only access and allow to run 1 specific application only. Also the user should not be able to shut down the server but only log off option should come when he wants to exit.

Kindly advice the procedure to do as above

Hi,

Regarding your first query about giving RDP access to only 2 users, this can be achieved via group policy. Edit the appropriate policy (GPMC.MSC)>>Computer Configuration>>Policies>> Windows Settings>>Security settings>>Local Policies>>User Rights Assignments>>"Allow log on through Remote Desktop service">>Define this policy and Add the desired users.

Regarding the users to allow only 1 application. I am not sure whether it's possible. If you give local admin rights then they will get all application access but not sure about restricting it in domain environment.

Ok, The solution for you to add the users using the Remote settings feature on the server. Right Click MyComputer>>Properties>>Remote Settings>>Remote>>Allow remote connections to this computer>>Select users>>Add those users.
