Can I connect to a users terminal server session

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.

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.

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.
