Hi whiwex,

any user accounts can log in to numerous sessions, there is no special setting you need... just log in :)

I should rephrase this.
User A logs in using username1.
Then User B logs in using usernam1. User A gets disconnected with a message saying another session using this username was stared.
User B is then setting in the application that user A was running.

On the terminal server - Start | Programs | Adminstrative Tools | Terminal Services Config

Go to Server Settings and change "Restrict each user to one session" to "No"
