Terminal Services

Posted on 2006-03-22

I have a Windows 2000 Advanced Server running Terminal Services in Remote Administration Mode.

According to MS the number of connections to the server in Remote Administration Mode is limited to three (two remote and one directly from the terminal).

Is there anyway to increase the number of connections?

    No...unless you actually install Terminal Services in application mode...which requires licensing.

    Another thing you can do is limit the connection so it doesn't stay active after a disconnect.  One of my clients has 5 of us administering the system for different programs, but we rarely log in at the same time.  Inactive sessions automatically log off after 15 min. and "Almost" never have a problem with running out of connections.
