    Prevent access to other servers

    Hi all,

    I would like a particular non-staff member have VPN access to a member server using the account I created for him. However, what I don't want is him being able to access the other servers. For example, typing in the run dialog box: \\servername\sharename

    So far all I have managed to do is created a security group and dump his user account in it. I was hoping someone would be kind enough to tell me what the next step would be from there.

    Hm,

    I don't really understand the question?

    I mean, are they using a workstation logged in with their "normal" domain credentials? If so, they can't access anything they couldn't already do at work.

    If its a local account he's connecting with from a workstation not associated with the network he won't see anything beyond the server itself without authenticating to the domain.
