    I have a need to let users RDP into W2K3 servers and/or XP Pro, but I want to
    prevent them from strating another session from within that session. How can
    this be done?

    1) User is external to my network
    2) User VPN's into my local network
    3) User RDP into a W2K3 server or XP Pro Desktop
    4) From the W2K3 server or XP Pro Desktop the user RDP's into another server
    or desktop on my network.

    I want to prevent number 4 from occuring. Which means that they would be
    required to use their local PC to create another RDP session to a second or
    third PC/Server. I don't want an RDP session from occuring from the machine
    that they RDP'ed into. I hope that is a bit more clear.

  4. Yes, this makes it perfectly clear. I can think of only one
    way to prevent this: Remove mstsc.exe from the machines
    on your local network, or rename it so that only you can
    find it.

    Will your suggested resolution allow the original RDP session into the PC?

  6. mstsc.exe is required to ***launch*** a Remote Desktop
    session on the client. It is not required to ***host*** such
    a session on the host. Try it out for yourself - it risk free!
