Any way round the 2 user RDP limit?
Multiple user remote access problems

 11:13 am on Oct 19, 2006 (gmt 0)

We are stuck with a limit of just 2 simultaneous users on remote desktop connections to a Win2003 server.

We need to allow 5-6 simultaneous users to be connected and I have researched and found this isn't possible with Windows2003 as it is.

Can one of the 3rd party solutions allow more simultaneous logins with individual windows user accounts - so that each can retain their own desktop/thunderbird/firefox settings?

I was thinking one of the VNCs or Gotomy... or similar but haven't been able to acheive this.

If I remember correctly, you just have to purchase more licenses for Terminal Services.

I'm not sure that solves it, however i have found a patch/hack that seems to allow unlimited remote connections - nervously installed it and it worked perfectly....

I guess I can't link to it - just Google for "TerminalserverNoRestrPatch-1-1"

I don't know about that one. What came up with Google wasn't very reassuring. I wouldn't try this on a production server.....
