Make RDC on 2003 behave like XP

    We've got an interesting problem here at work. We have a
    series of FoxPro applications that are acting as Daemons
    to process various bits of information. These apps don't
    run as services so we only want one instance of them
    running at a time. We would like to setup a Server 2003
    box to replace the 2000 machine they're running on but
    RDC's multiple concurrent user capabilities are hindering

    We would like to some how make RDC on Server 2003 behave
    like RDC on a XP machine that has Fast User Switching
    enabled so that only one desktop can be running at a time
    whether it be at the console or remotely and that someone
    using RDC can disconnect the session from the console and
    take control. We would also like to limit the system so
    that only one account can be logged in at any given time.

    Is this possible? How would we go about setting this up?

    We're trying to avoid installing pcAnywhere.

  2. Hi,

    Click Start -> Run..
    Type "tscc.msc"

    Right click RDP-Tcp, go to properties

    Click the Network Adapter tab

    If you change Max connections to 1, then it will allow at most 1 console and
    1 virtual session. I've never set it to 0, so I don't know how that works
