How do I increase the number of connections using terminal services in windows sbs 2003?
Posted on 2004-11-09
I have a sbs2003 in a central office. In 4 other off site offices I have 4 windows XP Pro computers that connect to the server using the remote desktop connection . I can't have more than two of these computers logged onto the server at a time. Basically when more than 2 people try to connect, the third person gets the following error at the logon screen, "The terminal server has exceeded the maximum number of allowed connections".
What I need is the solution to be able to connect more than 2 XP Pro computers to the server using remote desktop connection. I have went into the Group Policy Object Editor and told the maximum number of connections to be unlimited, but this does not do anything. I have also activated the terminal server license server, with the same results.
I have tried using a vpn to the server but the program that I am running is too big, and takes along time to load files and databases, so this is not a viable solution.
This area seems to be a big mystery as I can't find a straight answer to the problem, so I am awarding 500 points for the solution
As always, thanks in advance the the knowledge,
