    Hi, is it normal behaviour (not sure I like it) that a "user" can log onto
    the server through MSTSC? Obviously permisions still apply, but I thought
    only Admin could logon to the server, locally or remotely.

    How do I turn off this feature, or do I need it to remain on for other
    features to work?

  2. it is NOT normal for users to be able to sign onto the server, by MSTSC or
    otherwise.

    Didn't think so! Any idea how I fix it?

  4. Add a user (server manager, users, add a user) and give them full admin
    rights, username and password random, as you go through the wiz. This
    account doesn't need a mailbox. We're going to delete it.

    In the server management console under users, 'Change User Permissions'
    against all user accounts. Tell it to replace previous permissions and set
    up all user accounts as 'users'. Are the users still able to log on to the
    SBS?

    Heh, well can I have a fix first if they can't, before I try this :)

    I'll have a dig around and see if I can find what's up with it. One
    question, is the user inherited from the user template? Maybe I've screwed
    with that.

    I'll get back to you with more info. thanks.

    Is this relevent? Domain Users -> member of -> users & remote desktop users

    I think it is. My unprivileged account is refused login at the console
    but has no problems using http://server/tsweb, locally or over VPN. As I
    said a week or two ago here, I suspect that behaviour is unintended.
