Terminal Service Admin or App. Mode?

By bash3r ·
I have a W2K server that I need 1 user to connect to, to check email and run a few local apps. My questions is whether I should just set up terminal service in remote admin mode for this one user or setup application mode which I understand is muchmore involved.

IF I setup remote admin mode can I setup this user so they don't accidently shutdown the server or run any administration programs?? I only want them to be able to open MS Office 2000 and browse the network as if they were a localuser.

Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

Terminal Service Admin or App. Mode?

by Joseph Moore In reply to Terminal Service Admin or ...

the only bad thing about setting up TS in Application Mode is you will then need to by a licence from Microsoft in order for the user to connect. So, keep that in mind.
If you can afford (and justify) the TS licence, then definately go with the Appmode. If not, then you can try in Remote Admin mode, and just limit what this user account can and cannot do, using Group Policy.

hope this helps

I did some more research and decided to go with Remote Admin mode and I just created a new OU with a Group Policy that has shutdown and a few other Windows Settings disabled. I enabled Logoff on the Start Menu also. Here's a link I found that helped me out also.
