Software for NTAVO device (Linux Based) to do Remote Viewing

We use XP pro on our computers.  I have several NTAVO devices that have RDP built into be able to connect to a pc that has either terminal services or remote desktop connection enabled.  Here is my main issue...I don't want the user that is logged on to be logged off when someone connects via RDP.  I want it to behave something like VNC viewer.  I see there are probably two options:

1.  Have some kind of setting in RDP on the host computer changed.
2.  Install a new viewer type program on the thin client (NTAVO) and make each PC a host.

The problem is that we are a pharmacy and have some areas (counseling booths) that just do not need to be accessed by a fully functioning PC that often.  AND if someone is at that "other" spot, they likely have left the PC they were working on, therefore they could log into it since no one else is using it...

Hope this makes sense...

You can't do that with XP based PC's, as with that OS the License only allows one user to be logged on at any one time (you could maybe do it with the remote assistance option, but that isn't want you want here because that would require the local PC's user to send you an invitation).

For your requirements you would need a real server OS (windows 2003 server) with terminal services in application mode installed and adequate licenses for TS having been acquired.

But again, with XP it's the license of the OS that won't allow you to have the user logged on locally and remotely at the same time.

That is what I was afraid of...any ideas on an app that I could install on these devices to do it?  They have ICA connections and Xterm connections as well.  I don't really know what either of those are...

ICA is to connect to Citrix Servers and Xterm is to connect to other X servers ('nix based OS's). If they have a VNC client you can use that, otherwise you'll have to get a Server installed.
