That is the net result you would have come up with had you followed my
suggestion (after a bit of mucking around :). The relevant policy
description is in c:\windows\inf\system.adm (on my pc at least) and
#if version >= 4
VALUENAME "fDenyTSConnections" VALUE NUMERIC 1
VALUENAME "fDenyTSConnections" VALUE NUMERIC 0
But I only found it quickly because of the key in your email, google is
indeed a wonderful tool. Have a look around in the file though and
you'll see some other useful keys you can set.
