Terminal Services - More than 2 connections
Posted on 2004-08-18
I am wondering how to connect more than two terminal service connections to Windows 2000 Server?
Currently when I try to connect a third client I get the error message:
The terminal server has exceeded the maximum number of allowed connections. The system cannot log you on (1B8E). Please try again or consult your system administrator.
I've searched for this error on MS support and I found the following:
Description: The user is attempting to log on to a Terminal Server in Remote Administration mode, but the server has reached its connection limit. Terminal Servers in Remote Administration mode allow a maximum of 2 concurrent sessions, active or disconnected.
There must be some way around this? It seems to me just a configuration issue, I can't see there being some inherent limitation with 2 connections.
