  • mstsc /console !

    Hi Friends!

    I'm not sure whether this question has been already raised by somebody else.

    Can somebody explain the major difference between using mstsc IP with and without switch /console ?

    Thank You

    the /console switch is used to gain access to the console session, i.e. the session you would normally have if you're sitting directly in front of the server.

      And it is relevant only when connecting to a 2003 server from other 2003 server or from XP. In the newer versions of RDC (available in Vista and 2008 Server) it was replaced by the /admin switch.
      It is also irrelevant when connecting to an XP machine, since there you have only one session you can connect to. Whenever you connect through RDP to an XP, the user that is logged in is kicked out.

        just to add, console switch will not use TS CAL meaning, if you have 5 CALs, you can connect up to six clients, 5 with regular TS CAL and one more with console switch
