Hi,
I need to allow a user to access the Remote Desktop session that another remote user uses to access the RDP server / Terminal Server. Much like the way an Administrator can connect or Remote Control on to a session through Terminal Services Manger or Remote Desktop Services Manager.
Is this possible without kicking the remote user off?

Thanks.

Well you can take over if you use the same username/password.
If you want to shadow the session afaik that is only possible with the console session.

No, you will need to use a 3rd party utility/tool to do this.

If using the console session just logon with the username/password of the allready logged on user and you should take over the session.

If using a 'normal' session make sure the Restrict each user to one session option is set to Yes in Terminal Services Configuration. Alternatively, set the Restrict Terminal Services users to a single remote session group policy to Enabled. Then that should act the same way.
