You are only allowed to use UP TO 2 connections UNLESS you install Remote Desktop Services and purchase Remote Desktop Services Client Access Licenses (RDS CALs).  Then you have to setup an RDS Licensing Server and you can allow more connections.

hi Leew,

is there other way to increase the RDC Licensing directly on that server without setting up a Remote Desktop License Server? i am trying to find an easy way. thanks

No.  You are NOT LICENSED to go above two.  Two is it.  I'm sure you're not looking to violate licensing.
