Terminal Server is an application that runs on a Windows server operating system. It allows your users to remotely control the server and access applications on it. The "RemoteApp" configurations on the Terminal Server limit the applications available for users. You can limit users to one application to prevent them from changing any settings or using unauthorised applications on the remote desktop.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the Windows server "Start" button, and select "Administrative Tools. Click "Terminal Services" and then "TS RemoteApp Manager."

  2. 2

    Click the "Add RemoteApp Programs" button in the "Actions" pane. This opens the configuration manager. Click "Next" in the wizard window welcome screen.

  3. 3

    Select your program in the "Choose programs to add to the RemoteApp Programs list" drop-down box. This limits the applications on your Terminal Server to just the specified application.

  4. 4

    Click "OK" and then "Next." The last window displays your settings. Click the "Finish" button to complete the server's configurations.
