Hey All,

I just installed server 2003 with terminal services licensing and terminal services. My question is about adding users I have 10 client per user licenses. This server is not on a domain. Do I have to add all users that I want to connect to this server to the users list and then add them to the remote desktop group? Any advice is appreciated

Yes, each user needs to be a member of the Remote Desktop Users group.  Is this not working?

It is working good so far but I haven't added any users yet. How many users can you add to a server. In the future I plan on having about 30 users connect to this server.

1. Just to make sure we are clear first I add the client as a user
2. Then I add the user to the remote desktop group.

You can add as many users as you wish.  Your steps are correct.  In my setup I'm running a domain and I have to also specifically allow 'Dial-In' access under each person's Active Directory account, but it sounds like you have a workgroup configuration and this extra action isn't necessary
