How many simultaneous remote desktop sessions can be connted to a  single XP Pro workstation or a single 2003 server?
We have a situation where we would like to have a remote desktop session open on as many as six different computers at the same time. All sessions would be connecting back to the same remote machine. I was told by someone that there can be only two simultaneous remote desktop sessions coming into a machine.
If that's the case, does anyone know of some other options that are not horribly expensive?
Thanks.

Thanks for the help.
Is Terminal services about the only low-cost option?
