Hey Guys,

A friend of mine and his wife own a fast food restaurant. They asked me:

1-if it is possible to lockdown/control the workstations (two of them) from the main computer located in the office. (third Party software, freeware?, or builtin to Windows?)

2- if it is possible to control their network of three computers located at the restaurant from their machine at home. Can this be done? (Remote Desktop, VPN?) They said that all machines are WinXP. How would the most user-freindly, cost effective way of going about this?

Thanks in advance....

1. you can set local policies on the pc's, but you would have to manage them via remote desktop connection.

Great thanks, Guys.

I personally did not know if XP remote desktop is safe enough. The actually main computer they want to control/lockdown is the one that controls the money tills. That one stays on nearly 24 hours a day, and anyone can access it at anytime.
