Restricting Users' Access to Applications in RDP Connections

On RDP connections you can restrict which applications each user is able to access on the target Windows host. When adding or editing a host, the ​Applications​​ entry allows you to specify restricted applications to each host user separately:

  • ​​Application Name (Required): ​​is the name of the application visible to the user when connecting to said application. The name should be unique, and searchable.

  • ​​Identifier (Required): ​​the name of the application's executable, otherwise known as an ​alias​​ (for example: mspaint, wordpad)

  • ​​Arguments: ​​command-line arguments to be passed to the application.

  • ​​Directory: ​​the working directory for the application.

Note that you need to configure the target Windows host to accept and use the remote applications you specify. For instructions about configuring applications for RDP, see ​see ​Publishing RemoteApps in Windows
