Enable multiple RDP connections per user in Windows Server 2008.

In Windows Server 2003 you could have multiple Remote Desktop session with the same user. In Windows Server 2008 this is not possible by default. If you login with the same user account the first session will be taken over by second session.

There are several (at least 4 methods to change this), here are two of them:
Method 1.
Allow multiple Remote Desktop sessions per user by changing a registry key.
1. Click Start, then Run and type regedit.
2. Check out the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer

3. If the fSingleSessionPerUser value doesn’t exist, create a new DWORD value named fSingleSessionPerUser.
4. Open the fSingleSessionPerUser value. The possible values for this setting are as follows:
– 0x0 Allow multiple sessions per user
– 0x1 Force each user to a single session

Method 2.
1. Click Start, then Run and type tsconfig.msc.
2. You should untick the Restrict each user to a single session option.

That’s should be all.
