Thin Client Question

I am considering using some thin clients (HP t5325 and HP t5570) to connect to Windows 2003 Terminal Servers.  Currently we have users that are connecting to up to 6 different servers concurrently via RDP sessions from there workstations.  Will the thin clients such as those listed above allow multiple concurrent connections?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

I have a few hp thin clients (*nix-based).  I had one setup with a widescreen monitor in portrait orientation, specifically to connect to many Windows servers at once.  Worked fine, but some of the models do not support widescreen resolutions.

Also, they are slower than a normal computer using RDP.

Oops. My bad.  When I stated that users were connecting to up to 6 sessions concurrently, I meant that they had active connections to 6 servers, but are only using one connection at a time, and switch between the others as needed.  This was so they didn't need to log off, and then back on (RDP) to each server as they needed to work on that particular server.

That's what I did.  Anywhere from 1-5 sessions at a time.  Kept them in 1024x768 windows and could shuffle between them and rearrange (or minimize) them on the screen.  I don't know how it would work with each session in full-screen mode...how do you switch between active sessions.  That's why I kept them in windows.  Besides, I was doing maintenance, so didn't need a giant screen for each session.

Sorry if that's not helping.
