Windows Adv Server 2000 Terminal Services - Remote Desktop Client

I have a Windows 2000 Advanced Server. We set up a 5 User Cal Terminal Server Licensing on the same server (we only have one server). Anyway we're having clients log into the server using Remote Desktop (built into XP). We can't seem to get more than two people on at a time even though the Licensing Status says Activated.  My questions are: 1. Is it okay to use Remote Desktop to access a 2000 Terminal Server?  2. Any insight as to why we can't get more than two on at a time? - Thanks!

Yes, absolutely.
2. - Check your event logs.  Perhaps it'll give you a clue (Start-Run-Eventvwr.msc)

LOL - see what happens when I go out to cut my grass...

gbfromsea, unless you can point out something that I said that helped over Pete's more accurate information, I'd feel better about this one being unaccepted so that you could either split or accept his comment as the answer.

Was it already in application mode?
