To disable Terminal Services connections
Click the System in Control Panel.
On the Remote tab, clear the Allow users to connect remotely to your computer check box, and then click OK.
The terminal server no longer accepts new connections, but existing connections are maintained until closed by the users. This allows administrators to shut down a terminal server gradually.
You must be logged on as Administrator or a member of the Administrators group to disable Terminal Services connections.
To open a Control Panel item, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click the appropriate icon.
Information about functional differences
Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
