    Hello,

    In a windows server you have by default 2 terminal connections and one console session.

    In a windows XP you can only connect by default via the console.

    I recommend to check which username you are trying to connect with.

          If you want to see the exact desktop as in the console, you should connect to the console.
          As sanvour said, you can have only one connection to the console. Meaning, that if you connect from remote, the screen on the console will be locked. If you connect to one of the two available remote sessions, you will see a new desktop (because it's a new session), the console session will remain open.
          See the mstsc /? command for details how to connect to console.

            This is the command:

            To connect from the remote Windows Server 2003-based computer, open a command prompt, and then type the following command:

            mstsc -v:servername /F -console

              Only real problem w/ MSTSC -CONSOLE is it doesn't let you know if someone is currently logged on the console like a normal Remote Desktop (MSTSC w/out and switches) does for an XP target.

              That would be annoying if someone else were logged on the console at the time.
              Cheers,
