  • limit to number of rdp connections?

    Hi:

    I'd like to know if there is a limit to the number of RDP connections on Windows Server 2003/2008 Std./Ent.? Or are we just limited by the hardware configuration?

    Regards

    1. You can use GPO/TS (+Session Directory) configurations to limit each user to one session.
    2. Buy a third party product that support this scenario.

      Hi,

      I'm afraid I wasn't clear enough. What I'd like to know is, is there any inherent limitation on the number of RDP connections on Windows Server 2003/2008 Std./Ent.? FYI, we do not want any limits on Std. edition x86.

      To clarifiy further, can we have say a 100 or 200 or 500 users running on 2003/2008 Std./Ent. x86/x64?

      Thanks

        Lots of links on Terminal Services Capacity Planning:

        Basically it will depend on both your server hardware and your network infrastructure (and of course your licenses).

        AFAIK there is no built in limit on any server OS (although unless you install TS / RDS you are very limited to the two admin connections)
