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.
Re: How to limit remote access to a Termional Server
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.

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.
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.
You can create 1 domain server in 1 computer . Then all connect all workstation to that server then you can share files with use level security .Also you can apply group policy on particular user with server. You can administrate all workstation from server. For that you need to buy windows 2008 enterprise edition with 25 user license so you can use server with 25 workstation limit. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
for what? Email? databases? web access? File and Print servers? Proxy server? Backup? Terminal server? If you're just talking about a domain with no applications, I suggest using 2 domain controllers for resilience.

Hope this helps same way for adding nic cars use server cars have the noch to fit.
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.
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. Steven
