    SBS server together with win2003 as application server TS.

    I want via RWW users connect to application server but not connect to remote
    desktops, better it's not visible for them.

    How can I do this. Can i make a special security group which can see remote
    desktops ?

  2. Hi Beano,

    Thanks for using the SBS newsgroup.

    From your description, I understand that you have some concerns about the
    RWW site and RWW users. If I am off base, please don't hesitate to let me

    If the authenticated user is only a member of Web Workplace Users group but
    not the Administrators group, the user is presented with the Knowledge
    Worker Web Page. It contains a welcome message, a sign out link, and links
    to SharePoint, Outlook Web Access, Client Help, Computer Desktop, and
    Terminal Server. It also has a link to download Connection Manager. If any
    of these features are not installed, the link will not be displayed.

    When we click the link "Connect to my computer at work", it will open the
    Computer Selection page that is populated with a list of all client
    computers on the network that are running Windows XP or above. If there is
    an additional Terminal Server on the network running in Application Sharing
    Mode, and the logged on user is a member of the TS Application Sharing
    group. then the Remote Web Workplace page will display a link to the
    secondary Terminal Server.

    There is no method to show only Terminal Server but no the client
    computers. This is by design. If you want users to only see the client
    computer list but not the terminal server, please ensure the users do not
    belong to the TS Application Sharing group.
