    Okay everybody: I have a Windows 2003 Server (DSL Connection) and thin-client workstations. I want to enable a logon policy and restrict internet acess to 1-2 logins. Much help appreciated.

    Do you mean that you only want the clients to be able to open a maximum of two IE windows? :blink

    I think he might mean only letting say 2 people access the internet at one time???

    I know that right now, the workstations just come on and no one needs to login. I need to change that so they must login and they do not get internet access.

    to block the internet access, depending on your environment, you could configure the relevant comps with wrong default gateways, either manually or through dhcp, or block those IPs (on the router) with a firewall.
    or see here.

    for the automatic logon:
    click Start > and then click Run. type control userpasswords2, and then click OK. in the dialog box that appears, enable Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer check box, and then click OK.

    or

    click Start > Run and type rundll32 netplwiz.dll,ClearAutoLogon.

    Hmmm.... You really need to give more background information. How do things work now? How does your internet access work now? Do you mean you have only 1 or 2 users that you want to connect to the internet, or do you mean that you want to allow all users to access the internet but throttle internet access so that only 1 or 2 at a time can connect?

    I don't think you can do this with TS on a standard 2003 server. You certainly could if you were using ISA (Internet security and acceleration server). ISA comes with SBS 2003 enterprise version or it is available as a stand alone product.

    When the firewall client is installed on the clients, ISA can restrict web access to specific users or groups and do other funky stuff like re-directs and blocking or allowing only certain sites.

    I am sure there are open source alternatives out there too.
