Hello,

I am using Windows Server 2008 R2. In the future I will have a lot of users, which will connect simultaneously. Is this possible with Windows Server 2008 via remote desktop? How many users can be simultaneously connected? Is there restriction in number?


Greetings, Frenky

The magic number is 2....plus 1 more if you use the -admin switch.  If you want this available for multiple users (more than 2), you'll need to install an enterprise terminal license server.
