you can do it by following these steps:

on the windows server 2008, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Remote Desktop Services, and then click Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration.
Under Connections, right-click the name of the connection, and then click Properties.
In the Properties dialog box for the connection, on the Network Adapter tab, click Maximum connections, enter the number of simultaneous remote connections that you want to allow for the connection, and then click OK.

You need to configure the Terminal Services Role for your Server. You can use it 60 or 90 days without acquiring TS CALs.
