If you need to disable connectivity to the Terminal Server, you have
several options. Note that disabling connectivity for Terminal
Server Clients is different from disabling normal user connectivity. For
non-client connectivity you can pause or stop the Net Logon or
Server services in Control Panel/Services. However, the Terminal
Server service cannot be paused, stopped, or disabled.
To disable Client connectivity, you can:
- Stop connectivity to the Terminal Server at the command prompt with the
Command, "Change Logon /Disable." You can re-enable connectivity with
"Change Logon /Enable."
- Stop connectivity to a specific socket connection in Terminal Server
Connection Configuration under Connection/Disable. This is the
same action as opening the connection and selecting Logon/Disabled under
the Advanced Configuration.
- Stop connectivity for a user or group to a specific socket connection in
Terminal Server Connection Configuration under Security/Permissions.
- Stop connectivity for a specific user in User Manager by opening the
user account and selecting CONFIG. Here you can uncheck the box, "Allow
Logon to Terminal Server." If you modify the user's domain account, the
user will not be able to connect to the domain from ANY Terminal Server.
