Simultaneous LogMeIn Access to Individual User Remote Desktops

I have installed LogMeIn IT Reach (but have been switching back and forth between Free version, not sure if it matters) on my Windows Server 2003 SP2 server. Our company's users have been connecting to their remote desktops on the server via a VPN connection and then Windows Remote Desktop Connection. I recently realized that LogMeIn would be perfect for us because it only requires a browser and Internet Connection without having to deal with VPN virtual IPs, hefty system requirements for all of the software, and frequent disconnections. The bottom line is I want to make this work with LogMeIn. I installed LogMeIn and Scout on the server. I allowed access to the domain users. I would like to be able to set up "secondary users" in our LogMeIn account to be able to log into their remote desktops on the server. However, it seems that LogMeIn sees the server as a single machine with multiple profiles and only allows one user to login at a time--as if it were a PC. Has anyone successfully installed LogMeIn on a Windows 2003 Server to be able to allow remote access to users' remote desktops simultaneously? There has to be a way.

no you cannot do it with logmein, or VNC.
they can however log in via web through www.yourdomain.com/tsweb

Eh, that's disappointing. Would you say that TSWeb access is any more reliable than a RDC over VPN? It would at least be fewer steps for the end user and not require software installation for the client PC.

it does still require software load, although it is prompted (click here to load active X).
No more reliable than RDC, (or less reliable)  although i have never experianced a reliability problem with RDC, maybe your VPN is Dropping.
as for fewer steps. it is certainly easier to explain to the end user. (hell you can even put a link on your home page).
