Multiple simultaneous RDP sessions?

Hi. I recently started to use RDP and I was wondering if my friend would be able to RDP into my machine while I'm using it (in front of my desk). I saw that there's a Group Policy setting for it but it doesn't seem to do anything. Is this setting only for RDP sessions or does it count for me being local and my friend being remote? Thanks.

I don't know but if you tell me the GP setting I can test it. I have a remote computer I can RDP to and RDP back from.

If you're interested in a product please download and read the manual first.

Don't forget to tag or quote in your reply if you want me to know you've answered or have another question.

Although thinking about it why not just let them remote assist?

Why not use teamviewer? for RDP you'd have to port forward. You won't be able to use your PC while RDP is in use..

i'm pretty sure this is limited to windows server

Not really, you need a terminal server license to allow multiple connections to any device

My mistake, It's name was changed to Remote Desktop Services, I haven't used it so I would assume it would work.

i guess if it's actually a thing on windows 10 someone at work made a huge mistake when using a windows 10 box to host a pile of VMs for windows 10 remote desktop sessions.

 

although.. because of how thorough the guy that set this up tends to be.. i'm sure he'd had found that as an option.

Yeah, I suggested teamviewer.

Yes, it is possible, as long as you don't must see what other user do on your computer.

You must create user for every session and modify your system a little. You must use RDP Wrapper for that or modify termsrv.dll (link). Second option is better imo.

I'm not sure is it or not against policy, but it works.

 

Second option, if you need to see users at their work, is to use Radmin (much better than TeamViewer). It works using direct connection (instead of central server), so you must configure port forwarding (but for RDP you must do it too) and it's not free software (but is fully functional for 30 days and is cheap).
