    Hi

    Can I have Concurrent Remote Desktop Sessions in Windows XP pro with SP2?

    When the second user logs in.. the fist user gets logged off..

    So only one user is able to work at a time..

    Regards

    This is normal behaviour.
    There may be a way around it but I'll let you for it.

          Anyway, why do you need to do that. Rightfully concurrent logon or multi-session logon feature is bulit for server. (correct me if I am wrong)

          Hope that is useful for you.

              Be aware also that VNC Free Edition does not do:
              1. NTLM/Kerberos Authentication (Enterprise edition does)
              2. Encryption of the link (Enterprise Edition does)
              3. Hashed password transmission (Enterprise edition does)


              This means that in the free edition:
              1. Your session with a remote machine can be taken over by a hacker with moderate skill,
              2. Your VNC passwords are sent "in the clear" and can be read by the whole Internet
              3. Once they have your VNC Password, all they need is VNC to control your PC.


              I would STRONGLY ADVISE, if you are going to use VNC over the Internet, BUY THE ENTERPRISE VERSION. It would be all but impossible to "hack" or "crack" an encrypted VNC Session with hashed password transmission, and even if you could, Kerberos authentication means it would be nigh-on impossible to get into the remote machine without a user name and password.

                  Thanks guys *GRIN*

                  One more thing; if you're going to leave your PC open to remote connections while you're out at work or whatever, for goodness' sake LOCK WORKSTATION when you leave in the morning. No amount of firewalls or encryption are going to save you if you leave remote control ports open and your machine unlocked. I know.

                    Hi Tom,
                    You are right. The security risks are still there if you using remote sessions. Even remote desktop is not save and hackers can use it do break in your machine. The ssckrp was wondering is there any way two/3 people can work on one xp machine from network. So I adviced VNC.
                    JeremyW, web link for vnc is www.vnc.com
                    There you can find all information related to it.
                    There is one more good remote software I found
                    it is called GoverLan
                    www.goverlan.com ... It is very very unsafe software but yeah my friend ssckrp can let 3/4 users connect to xp machine by using goverlan

                    best wishes to every one
                    be happy
