Get Started

Allow more than 2 connections to run remote desktop on a Windows 2008 R2 server.

Last Modified: 2016-02-16

We have an application running on a  Windows 2008 server (standard edition).  Initially, only a few users using the application so we just ask them to RDP to the server.  

The number of users has increased.  What do we need to do on the server to allow more connections?  Do we need to buy additional RDS CALS?
