    Hi,

    Is there a way to add a user account to the approved RDP list for a
    workstation? Something controlled through an MMC, not through actually
    connecting through remote desktop to the machine and then logging someone
    off and then logging in as an admin to manually add them.

    I know that this is possible to do through "local security policies", but
    can I remotely connect to a desktop's "local security policies"?

    Thanks for any help,

    jcy

  2. Hello jcy,

    Is the machine domain member? Then you can configure a GPO for this.

    Best regards

    Mr. Weber,

    Won't the GPO update all the desktops in the domain?

    I brought up gpedit.msc and it doesn't appear to allow for granular control
    of a desktop.
