How to limit remote access to a Termional Server

How would I restrict remote access to a Terminal Server to a specific location/workstation?.

I want our remote users to use a predetermined remote computers/IP address (maybe) when accessing our Terminal Server. What happens is that with proper login credentials and knowledge of the TS' IP address,
remote users can use Windows' Remote Desktop connection and establish a remote desktop session be it on a public computer, unsecured wi-fi and/or compromised PC.

    I want it the other way around. I have a list of IP address that I will allow access while the rest are shut out.

The best way to do this that I've found is to restrict the access via your firewall. Typically, Terminal server is listening on port 3389. So you would create rules in your firewall that will block any traffic to this port from IP addresses or subnets that you don't trust. While you're at it, you should shut down all other ports to everyone if you're not using them.

Poweredge 6600 not showing display

If you have multiple video connections (onboard from motherboard, usually vertical or stand alone video card, usually horizontal) that you plug into the stand alone card, as the onboard is normally disabled when the expansion is installed. Verify the cable and monitor both work and that the monitor is on the correct input. Finally try another video card, if you have one available. Even if the drivers are not correct, etc, you should still see a boot screen.

No Desplay in monitor

If you have already tested the monitor , cable and made sure that the problema is not your kvm, you can try the following.
1. try remote access via ILO or pinging the server from another pc or server if you get a response you may have a problem with the enbedded video card, so the system board would need replacement.
2. try opening the server and move to the system maintenance switch board.Locate switch #6 move it to the off possition turn the server on for 30 seconds then turn the server off and move the switch back off this procedure will clear the cmos and ( to locate the system maintenance switch refer to the diagram in the side cover inside the server.

We have a hp9000 and I am trying to connect into a hp9000 rp5450 how is this done?

This machine is running Unix, specifically some flavor of HP-UX. How to connect to it really depends on how much it is locked down for security. Serial terminal session, telnet, and ssh are all options.

The easiest thing is to hook up a standard vga display, keyboard, and mouse and connect this way. If you don't have a root login and password you will be very limited in what you can do though.

Remote Desktop via VPN problem

Make sure that the Active Directory setting for the User you are using to RDP with (LDAP FQN) has the remote access option turned on.

Also make sure that the PC's you want to access have static IP addresses. Not sure if that was mentioned.

Installing Image on Linux server through network

If you're using any any flavor of redhat (RHEL, CentOS, Fedora), this can be easily done using kickstart. It's a preconfiguration utility to allow a user to simply type a single one line command after booting from a cd, and completely install a whole server remotely. Comment back with your linux distro, and maybe I can give more specific details.
