RDC Connection limited to 2

i have two boxed at the office running windows 2003 standard that i have configured to all rdc connection through our firewall from remote locations. the problem is that i can only have two connections to each box at a time. when i go to the terminal services configuration properties and try to increase my connections above 2 i get a message telling me that i have RDC set up in the default mode and the maximum number of connections allowed is 2. is there anyway to change this? it is very restrictive to only allow 2 connections in the box and i need to increase that number if at all possible.

Hi Scott,
Here is a link which has a Terminal Services DLL that will make it possible to have multiple connections.

Please let me know if this helps you.

Krish,

looking at the information on that site concerns me with trying to implement this on a windows 2003 box. the hack says that it works specifically on windows xp and mce but does not mention 2003.
How many connections do you need? 2 is the normal amount without buying terminal server licenses. Perhaps you need to look at that.

i did not purchase any terminal server licenses when i set up the boxes with 2003. is that the problem, is this just a licensing issue?

it is mainly for system deployments that we have to work on and outside developers that have to access the system during deployment.
Well I think you will need terminal server licenses. The rdc you are using is only for admining the server..
