Windows XP Pro does not allow concurrent connection via Remote Desktop

I was a bit disappointed when I could not connect to my PC via Remote Desktop because there was another local user logged on to my PC.

I landed on Vishnu’s page where there’s some interesting info on how Microsoft has disabled Concurrent connections in SP2 .

I am used to doing on lot of RDCing @ Photon .But sadly the OS we use at work is Windows Server 2003 which allows upto 3 Concurrent connections. (1- console 2 – remote )

Have to see if the workaround works
