    We have some computers that we would like to connect to our domain that will
    be accessable to the public. We would like them to be connected to our
    server so that we can manage them, but we need to lock them down so that
    nobody using them can access network resources such as shared files, etc.
    We are using Small Business Server 2000. What is the best method to setup
    these computers?

    Use a group policy and assign user and computer rights.

    Hi Curtis,

    Thanks for your posting!

    From your description, I understand that you would like to configure a
    client PC to be controlled by the server, and let users who are using the
    client can not access network resource. If I'm off base, please let me know.

    As for this goal, I would like to provide the following action plan:

    1. Create a domain user account for this client PC.

    2. Set permissions on all the network resources for this user account to
    prevent this account accessing.

    3. Delete other domain user from the local. To do so:

    Open control panel -> user and accounts -> delete other domain user account

    Then, only this domain user account can logon the domain on this client,
    and he will not have the permission to access any network resource.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know.
    It's my pleasure to be of assistance.

    Best regards,

    Jerry Zhao (MSFT)
