    Hi there

    Im looking at the topic 'managing access to files and folders'. They mention about share permissions and remote users accessing files and folder using it. Can you define 'remote users'?

    I assume it someone logging into the network via another office using RAS, but I'm not 100% sure that is the case.

    Thanks.

    remote accessing is someone who is using a computer from outside, for example if I had remote access to your PC then I could be at my home and use your pc by using my pc.

    The "Remote desktop users" group allows the any user who are a member of this group to connect to other computer using Remote Desktop Connection or Remote Web Connection. The only other group that connect remotely access a machine are the "Administrators" group, as they have full access through the domain.

    Hope this helps.

    I would think that in the scenario you're talking about like GBL mentioned is that remote users are user who access the files that have the share permissions from the outside, meaning they're not on your computer but at a different computer whether in the office or at home.

    Would a user coming in over a VPN count?

    So in that scenario anyone logging onto your PC from another PC on the network LAN or remotely RAS counts. These are the users where Shared Access security is used.

    One other thing, is the RAS service used even if you on are on another PC logging into a PC on the same network in the office on the domain?

    Thanks for your help.
