    Is there any way to allow more than 2 clients remote desktop into a Win2k3server machine?

    the server has 3 users alloed to remote in.
    While 2 are remoted in, the 3rd gets a popup stating that the maximum connections has been reached.

    On the server I can read (I think its stated in the Terminal Services Configuration) this policy provides 2 concurrent connections.

    Can I change this? If so, where?
    Thanks!

    Yes, you buy a Terminal Services license from MS.

    Simple as that.

    Yeah, I know that is one solution.

    What I am wondering is... can you change the number of connections allowed in remote desktop. I dont want TS/license only the in-box RDC. Is two connections all that are allowed period?

    ~Thanks

    That is the point of the license, no way to change it unless you use a third party app to remote into the server such as VNC, PC Anywhere, etc...

    PC Anywhere sucks!

    VNC is also pretty bad.

    Stick with the 2 licenses of RDC... If you need more, then buy more.

    UltraVNC + Mirror Video Driver = teh win.

    Not as good as RDP of course, but better than anything else by a mile. Plus it's free.
