We have a windows 2003 standalone server that is not part of a domain. The
box will sit in a DMZ location acting as a web server. What level of access
does an account need if they require remote access to the application,
security and system event logs? I want to restrict an account from having
admin permissions to the system. In the local securiyt policy, the options
are set to restrict guests from accessing the logs. We are using a 3rd party
application that connects and downloads the log information on a regular
basis and really would like to restrict the level of access this account
requires in order to connect and download these logs.

Thanks in advance for any help given.
