I have an application on a windows xp box that various users need to access - sometime there may need to be 3 or 4 users connected at the same time - XP only allows one user to connect in remotely at a time - I came across an article (Linked below that apparently allows multiple users) how ever this didnt work as the dllcache folder doesntr exist on the pc in question.

Any one any ideas of the best way of achieveing this?

Multiple RDP sesssions to an XP machine is a contravention of the licence agreement.

  Hi William_Conway
       Editing Windows XP for allowing concurrent RDP sessions by following the article above, breaks/bypasses the copyrights of Microsoft. Experts here are aware of that and we wont supply information about this issue.
       The answer of your question is, "You should purchase a Windows server Operating System which can run Terminal services on itself, and you have to add TS CALs if more than 2 users have to connect via RDP"

Okay I didnt realise it was a contravention of the licence agreement - but wont proceed down that path if it is    
- are there any good 3rd party free softwares that can be used for this purpose.  I have used dameware in the past - but the cost of this restricts it from this purpose. If there was a freeware similar version out there somewhere that might do the job.

Check out Winconnect Server XP at http://www.thinsoftinc.com/

WinConnect Server XP enables a Windows® Small Business Server 2003 or Windows® XP computer (Host PC) to allow up to 21 remote desktop sessions.

I've used it in the past and it works pretty well.
