    internet on/off how to terminal clients

    Hi all we use symsntec web security to group clients based on machine names and ip addresses to block/filter internet how can i apply or find out for sure which ip/name my tsclients get issued. they are windows 98 machines not connected to the domain logging into a customised mstsc.exe shell?

    thanks in advance.

    Re: internet on/off how to terminal clients

    I've been playing with TS and am also a SWS user (although hoping to get away from it). I haven't spent much time testing, but I think SWS recognises all requests as being from the server, and not from clients, which isn't at all surprising.

    you need some way of reading the clientname variable rather than hostname or computername. I do not know how SWS works so cannot help much more than this... sorry.

    If you can do what you want via the command line you can check if it's run in the context of a terminal session by the presence of a couple of environment variables.

    For Citrix:
    Code:
    echo %sessionname% | find /I "ICA-tcp"
    if %errorlevel%==0 goto (GOTO:EOF)
    For MS Terminal Services:
    Code:
    echo %sessionname% | find /I "RDP-Tcp"
    if %errorlevel%==0 goto (GOTO:EOF)

    Change the gateway address of the terminal server temporarily?

    Re: internet on/off how to terminal clients

    this would work if all my clients were in one room only but i have about three rooms so need to be able to isolate via ip.
