How di i Switch off multiple logins

Hi there

Hope someone can help.
How do I switch off the feature on a windows 2003 server where the server is not a terminal server, but 2 or 3 accounts can login remotely into the server.
In other words, 2 people from 2 different locations can log in with the administrator credentials.
I would like to disable this feature.

Steven --

Open Terminal Services Configuration Manager
go to start> Run > tscc.msc

in the left pane -- select server settings
in the right pane -- double click restrict each user to one session.  enable.

that should do it for you.

Question is not clear, but if you want to disable terminal services just go to services and disable terminal services service.  It will no longer run.

If you want to stop the same user logging on more than once then you will have to use a tool such as LimitLogon http://www.thincomputing.net/blog/ms-download-limitlogon-1.0.html

Did I understand your question correctly -- you want to turn off the ability of users to connect to the server admin console remotely.  

To do this, disable the Terminal Services Service.

click on Start>Administrative Tools>Services
Select the Terminal Services Service
Right click and select properties
select startup type - set to disable

If you do this, you will not be able to connect to the desktop remotely at all.  

Let me know how this works out.

Cheers.

Hi Halejr1

Sorry, was away for the weekend....
unfortunately i still want to use the remote desktop to the server, but i dont wat the administrator to be able to open 2 sesions...
this causes problems with some programs that opens at startup.
