Group policy no domain

Can I use this server as a basic server that is not a domain controller and
use the group policy for remote logins to the server 2008?

I not sure I follow you - what is it you want to do? Group Policy is for
managing machines and user desktops from remote or locally. They
basically do not provide logon functionality. That's what AD does. Can
you elaborate a little more what you're trying to do?

cheers,

Hello,

What I have is a remote connection that can not change the zone settings in
IE and the only way I think this can be done is by group policy changes. Is
this correct?

That is true. In order to roll out a setting like this to a number of
machines, you'd need to have them in an Active Directory domain as
members. If you have no domain - as I think you did imply this with your
first post - you need to make the changes in one of the machine's Group
Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) and copy the "Group Policy" folder in
system32 to all other machines manually.

So how do I configure the policy first before I copy it to the desktop?

Start gpedit.msc on a client and navigate to
User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet
Explorer\Internet Control Panel\Security Page\Site to zone assignment
list and make your changes there.

Do I have to install something to run gpedit.msc?

Thanks for your help.

no. You need to have a Windows 2000, Windows XP Prof or Vista Business
and above station to run it.
