Hi Experts,

I have windows server 2003 standard. I have 5 CAL's for terminal services. When people log on using xp remote connection, only one user can be logged on at a time. Is there a way to have multiple users logon at the same time?

Also, when logged on remotely is there a way to transfer files from the host computer to the remote one? I'd appreciate all your help. Thanks

Windows 2003 in RDP mode should allow 2 remote connections, is terminal services installed correctly?

To transfer files, at the client, start mstsc (start ->run->mstsc), select the options button then the Local Resources tab, select Local Device , disk drives, then connect.

How do you setup RDP? And you said that only 2 can logon?

That type of termianl service is called remote administration.
See Control Panel Add/remove, Windows Components scroll down to Terminal Service

I did that, the boxes that are checked are terminal server & terminal server licensing. I see nothing that says RDP.

The server side is called Terminal Services; the client side is called RDP (remote desktop protocol).  Have you installed the 5 CALs properly?  To install the CALs you have to go to the Terminal Server Licensing console and add the licenses there.
