    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.

    Accepted Solution

    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"
