Configuring Remote Desktop to allow multiple users.


I need to use remote desktop at my office but whenever I log on to the host machine remotely I get a message indicating that the local user who is presently logged on will be logged off if I log in. This although I am using a separate user account.

Interesting I use NComputing's ( )  Hardware and software on the machine and the multiple log ins work fine.

Is there a way to edit GPO to allow the remote user to log in without the local user being logged off?

Thank you for your assistance

on xp only one user can login remotely and if he logs in local user will have to logout there is an .dll file to increase it to 2 but i think i can suggest it here....

so only one is allowed

the hack is probably a violation of all kinds of licensing agreements, truly use at your own risk

Followed the instructions but the issue is still there.

I removed the NComputing  

Same issue
Bottom line, it is illegal to hack the OS, to increase the amount of connections via RDP. This was changed in SP1 I believe years ago. It is only licensed for one concurrent user, plain and simple.....

Thanks Vee
