How many remote desktop sesions Windows server 2008 enterprise supports?

Is there a difference in the number of remote desktop sessions supported by default in standard edition and enterprise edition of server 2008 without having to purchase additional CAL licenses?
As far as I am aware Standard supports 3 maximum, does Enterprise support more than 3?

I think you are refering to Admin Sessions? For remote desktop?  This is very different from Terminal Services or Remote Desktop Services.

They both only support 2 connections unless you purchase RDS/TS Cals

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

in short. if you didn't purchase the license server, Windows allows for 2 RDP sessions to the host machine.

remember to remind use to logoff instead of just discconect from the server, or you might run out of RDP session.

the 2 RDP sessions are for Remote Administration use, they should not be used for Shared Application use, and I believe they are not licensed for this purpose.

If you access the console session (via mstsc /V:yourserver /console or mstsc /V:yourserver /admin depending on your terminal services cliente version) you can get a third session going.
That takes hold of the local session.
