Hi Experts,

1.  Workstation is running windows 7 pro as host

2.  laptop is running windows 7 pro

3.  while the laptop is accessing the workstation, if a user log in to the workstation, it will kick out the laptop connection right away.

Is there anyway to prevent that?  thanks.

Windows 7 only allows 1 RDP session which is why you are being kicked out -

Not sure if there are 3rd party tools that might enable this...

smckeown777 is right.  Windows only allows 1 rdp session. However as he said there is a work around but it might be against the MS TOS  So read on at your own risk!

yes, we only access with 1 laptop at a time.  but, as soon as the host workstation login, it kicks out the remote.  

in other word, the user of the host workstation will disconnect the rdc when she simply login to windows with alt-ctl-del.  

Just want to confirm it is normal.  thanks for your patient.

That is normal for XP.  Only one user at a time, local or remote is allowed.  Here's a bit further reading if you'd like
