Windows Server : Too Many users Logged In"

How do I change the number maximum number of concurrent users on my server? When I try to logon as three users it says "Windows Logon Select a user to disconnect so that you may login. There are too many users logged in."

I am running Windows Server 2008 - Standard Edition.

Is this trough Remote Desktop?

If it is you can only have 2 RDP session open when in remote admin mode. You will need to instal terminal services and licensing.

Increase the number of CALs you have by contacting the Microsoft web site and making a purchase for them.

Yes, via RDP. Is there another way to remotely login?  How about via or ?   Hmmm, is there a way to locally login more than 2 users concurrently and then I could use to access those accounts.  What do you think?

If I increase the CALs, then can more than 2 RDP be connected or do I still need to install terminal services?
You will still need to install terminal services.
