Can "Allow log on locally" block remote access?

Is it possible the group policy setting "Allow log on locally" (Computer Configuration/Policies/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/User Rights Assignment) can block people remote access the PC that is in the OU this group policy applied to?

Thanks much!

No, those are not related. You can log in locally and from remote independent from each other.
No, that won't block remote access.
But keep in mind that the User Rights Assignment settings are not cumulative, in other words if you have one GPO that has a certain configuration for User Rights Assignment settings, and then another GPO that has a different configuration for User Rights Assignment, only the settings from the GPO with higher precedence will be in place (assuming that both GPOs apply to the computer).

"Allow log on locally" GPO setting will only block the interactive logon, still user can access the server like access files and services, more bout GPO's
