How can multiple users connect to an XP machine at the same time?
Posted on 2004-04-22
I have a PC running XP home and we have three users who need to connect to the machine at the same time and do different things. Like User A needs to check files in C:\Folder1, user B needs to work on a word document, user C needs to work on an excel file. Is it possible to do something like this in XP? In a linux box, multiple people can "login" to the machine with Putty or telnet, is something similar possible in XP. Currently we use VNC to connect to the machine remotely, but only one person is able to do anything on the machine at any given time.
Would having a terminal server on this machine help? Where would I get the "terminal server" software? Is there any other solution for this - any pointers would be welcome. I have tried searching on the web, but havent got any clear answers.
I hope my question is clear. Thanks.
