Viewing Remote desktop connection

we are required to give a 3rd party access to our server (win server 2008). I have created an account which is currently disabled and I will only enable once they require it. My issue is the account has full admin rights which they need.

Once they log in with remote desktop I'm not able to see what they are doing. Is it possible to view what they are doing?

As microsoft removed the 'console' option from remote desktop client I've not come across one. I tend to use VNC now if I need to watch others or have them watch me. I tend to stick with TightVNC as it's licenced for copporate usage http://www.tightvnc.com

We do actually use Tight VNC for our voip servers. I get them to use that then....

I don't believe you have the option with Remote Desktop.  Try another application.  UltraVNC may work for you
