RWW Exclusions SBS 2003 – Leaving Desktops With Local Access Only

If you have a desktop you do not want accessed through the RWW portal there is a simple way to do this.  You add the computer name to the “ExcludeList”.

This applies to SBS 2003 not SBS 2008 (see Andy’s comment).

It is a subkey in the Windows Registry found here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SmallBusinessServer\RemoteUserPortal

Under this you will see a String Value ‘ExcludeList’

You should add desktops with no spaces and separating multiple names with a comma:

  1. I normally leave a .reg file on the desktop so i can easily make and apply changes for this.

    SBS 2008 is much easier – you have lot more control over remote access through the console itself

    • Thank you very much for sharing your experiences with SBS 2008. I couldn’t remember the specifics of how it works and my Hyper-V Core server which I used for all such labs is momentarily down under a rebuild. Am ramping up for my first SBS 2008 migration now, very exciting changes in the product.
