Remote Desktop multiple logons simultaneously

by flybige / May 24, 2006 12:22 AM PDT

After trying for over a month to get a VPN to work I have given up. I have been able to remote desktop to work. However, it doesn't allow multiple sessions so I end up kicking my wife off the home computer when I need to logon from the road.

Is there a way to allow multiple simultaneous sessions (i.e she can be on the local machine working and I can be logged in remotely?)

Research "Terminal Server"

It runs on Windows Server 2003 and supplies such a feature. However the cost may be more than your own machine to log into.

My understanding...

Unfortunately, you can only have one user logged into Windows XP so it would not be possible for you and your partner to be both logged into the same XP computer at the same time.

Best of Luck

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
