Locked

CITRIX AND WIN2K GROUP POLICY

By parulian27 ·
Hi,

I've got a desktop that the company client wants to access remotely. They suggest to install Citrix Terminal services on the desktop so they can access it remotely. I want to lock the PC down as much as I can through group and local policy. Do Group policies and local policies still effective through citrix TS? I am new in this game, pls help. cheers

CITRIX AND WIN2K GROUP POLICY

When you say desktop, I'm goint to assume it is Windows 2000 Server. If your client only wants to access the Desktop, there is no reason to spent the extra money on Citrix. Don't get me wrong, Citrix is a GREAT product. I am running XPe with 20 users, but it may not be necessary in your case. You will just set up the server to run TS in Application Mode. When the user logs in, it will be just like they are sitting at the machine, all policies in tact. to answer your original question, when a user logs into your TS with Citrix, all policies are still in effect. If you want specific policies for the users, you can go as far as creating OU's for them and assigning different policies.

I hope this long winded reply help.

The desktop is win2k pro workstation running specific application for the client. You are right, the client are already running citrix and I only have to install TS in application mode (no expenses on my behalf) But you answered my question perfectly! thanks a lot smkee! I will lock their win2k logon as much as I can (and yes I will create an OU specially for them!!)
