Using Group Policies in Windows XP
In Windows XP professional check out this following procedure to see the what you can on the local machine.
To set Terminal Services policies settings for a particular computer or for users of that computer, open the Group Policy snap-in to edit the Local Group Policy snap-in.
The Terminal Services group policies are not configured by default. You can configure each Group Policy to be either disabled or enabled.
  • From the Start menu, click Run, type mmc, and then click OK.
  • On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in.
  • In the Add/Remove Snap-in dialog box, click Add.
  • In the Add Standalone Snap-in dialog box, click Group Policy, click Add, and then click Finish.
  • In the Add Standalone Snap-in dialog box, click Close.
  • In the Add/Remove Snap-in dialog box, click OK.
  • In the console pane, you can see total new world of settinsgs you can make for the administration on the workstation, I am damn sure these settings can be done using the scripting or registry changes. But not necessary you have to use the scripts for all the purpose. I kinda liked this user interface. For somebody who want to check what happened when he executed the script. Here is the cool interface.

    I searched it when I had about 100 servers to remember so wanted to device a list of all RD Connections in my single console for the mmc where I control all the snap ins like MQ, IIS, Computer management, .Net Framework configuration and Biztalk server. Still searching for it.

    Using this Group Policy snap-in, you can change and configure the settings of all the components at computer level or at user level for Internet Explorer, Network settings, Software restrictions, Windows Components, desktop control panel. It is really cool to have everythign setup in a single screen.
