    Search these forums as this question has answers for the number of connections per TS.
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

      The number of connections is limited by:

      a) Your license;

      and

      b) Your server's hardware, the more connectios, the harder it'll work. Many concurrent connections use a lot of processing and memory.

      In order to increase them you need to:

      a) Buy more licenses;

      and

      b) Get better hardware (2 CPUs, 4GB or RAM, so on).

          Sorry, I don't undrstand what you're trying to say. By default TS is NOT installed, only the RDP part is installed. If you want more than 3 sessions you need to manually install TS.

            Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server Licensing A good article to read. If I understand your question correctly, after installing a Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server:

            Terminal Server Grace Period
            A terminal server allows clients to connect without license tokens for 120 days before it requires communicating with a license server. This period is known as the license server grace period, and begins the first time a terminal server client connection is made to the terminal server. This grace period is designed to allow ample time for the administrator to deploy a license server. It is not designed to provide for a period of “free” access to a terminal server. Per the Windows Server 2003 EULA, licenses are required to be purchased in order to access a terminal server. There is no provision in the EULA for accessing a terminal server without the appropriate licenses.
            The license server grace period ends after 120 days, or when a license server issues a permanent license token through the terminal server, whichever occurs first. Therefore, if the license server and terminal server are deployed at the same time, the terminal server grace period will immediately expire after the first permanent license token has been issued.
            Quote from the article from the above link. In plain English, you have 120 days to purchase the required number of TS licenses or it stops accepting TS connections.
            1 1 was a racehorse.
            2 2 was 1 2.

            2 2 1 1 2
