Enabling Remote Desktop in Win2000 server

Last Modified: 2013-12-05
I have set win2000 server system as RDP serer which is behind router. i have done port forwarding inthe routerto this machine.

I want multiple concurrent remote users to connect to this server thro rdp client thro internet.

I am not getting Remote tab when i right click on Mycomputer in win2000 server. I need to enale it so that multiple  rdp sessions can be established.
In xp sp2 i think this is not possible as at any point only one session can be established.
Even  in windows 2000 server , if i install Terminal services in administrative mode, only 2 sessions can be established. but if i want to use application mode i have to buy terminial services license.
But i was told that in win2000 server multiple concurrent  rdp sessions can be established from the clinets without buying the terminal services license.

Can some body explain how this can be achived in win2000 server.
