    Hi

    Can anybody advise how I can restrict access through RWW to specific
    computers?

  2. Can you explain a little more. Do you want to restrict a remote user to use
    only a particular LAN workstation or do you just want to "hide" certain LAN
    workstations from the list?

    Hi Merv

    I would like to restrict a remote user to two number particular LAN
    workstations.

    It would ne nice also just to list the particular workstations with-in RWW
    for the particular user.

    Regards
    Barry

  4. Unfortunately, per user restrictions can't be done within RWW. Now, if you
    want to always restrict access for that user (both when on the LAN and when
    using RWW), you can use:

    Server Management | Standard Management | Users | (rt click) a user account
    | Properties | Account (tab) | Log On To... | The Following Computers...

    Then add the target LAN workstations to the list along with the SBS server
    (required to get RWW access).

    Another possibility (though I've never tried it) is:

    2X SecureRDP

    I did the "Log On To..." with-in the user property settings; however, this
    restricted the RWW access completely.

    I guess its something to do with "Then add the target LAN workstations to
    the list along with the SBS server (required to get RWW access)."

    Not sure where to do this can you help.

    Thanks

  6. So, in the Log On To... section, you added the names of the workstations
    that you wanted the user to be able to log onto and then also added the name
    of the SBS itself, right?

    Is the user listed as a member of the Remote Web Workplace security group?

    On the workstation, if you specifically add the domain user to the Remote
    Desktop | Select Remote Users, does this allow RWW access to the
    workstation?
