  • restrict internet access to selected rdp/terminal services users

    Hi,

    We are in the process of deploying a thin client setup where users boot up from a local server and connect to the same or another terminal server within our LAN, both of which are internet enabled. By default all users on a terminal server get internet access if the terminal server has access to internet.

    We wish to restrict certain users from using internet for surfing, while continuing to use email.

    Suggestions/advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Neeraj

    Are those users in AD, or are they local users in TS? If they are in AD, then you could use following.

    Make two Organization units, one for restricted users, and one for normal users.

    And in restricted users OU, you put GPO with not working proxy settings, force proxy to be used and deny users from changing proxy settings. And if they need to use email with IE, then you can just add webmail address to excluded list of proxy settings.

      Hi Hassu:

      Thank you for your insight. However, in most cases the users are local users, part only of the Remote Desktop Users group and no other.

      Could you please advise how to go about in this case?

      Thanks
