Locking down Terminal Server

    I have a Terminal Server in a Workgroup environment that I would like to lock
    down to limit user access. I would like to configure a Group to drop users in
    with the restricted rights as you would in an AD environment, because I do
    not want administrative accounts to have the restrictions. Is this possible
    in a workgroup and if so, how to I go about doing it? Any other
    recommendations or best practices are welcome.

  2. Jabooty,
    You might be best off asking in a TS group, but as I think you already know,
    you won't be able to apply policy selectively on a 2003 workgroup server.
    Your choices are:
    Use a different way to apply settings for users; e.g a logon script writing
    registry settings
    Try the Server 2008 Non-Administrator local policy settings.

    Hope that helps,

    Thanks for your response Anthony and I will post this question in the TS
    Group. I had thought about the registry route, but wondered if there was an
    easier way. I am sure it will be fun locating the entries I need to adjust to
    perform the lockdown.
