Right now i'm using terminal server to connect to my comp at work. My comp at work is on a network of about 25 computers.

Can i make another connection onto one of the computers on the network?  

Right now its giving me an error message saying the client could not be connected to the remote computer.
Remote connectoions are not enabled or the computer might be to busy to accept new connections.

Yes you can, but unless it's a server with terminal services running on it you can't with the terminal services client ie if it's a windows 2000 pro pc -
There are though free utilities that will allow you to do this ie

What OS are you using???

Windows XP by default dont allow remote desktop connections.
You must right-click on my computer->properties->Remote->Allow users to connect remotly to my computer.

Then you must select the users that have rights to logon to that computer throught terminal services...

By default, only Administrators have that right...

Check that settings on the computers you want to logon throught terminal services...
