    I can't finish my work on a Windows 2003 server of my office. I keep my task
    windows open on the server. After going back home, on my home PC, I connect
    to this server via a Windows Remote Desktop connection. However I can only
    connect to a new session. Is it possible to connect to my working session so
    that I see all the opening task windows?

    Do you work on the Console in the office or also via RDP?

    reconnect works fine if:
    a) you work in the office with RDP and you Diconnect from
    session .. go home and simply reconnet to the disconected
    Session, another way is to restrict all users to singele
    session in Terminal Services Configuration .. then only
    ione session per user is allowed and if you logon on a new
    session the "old" one fallows you

    b) if working on console then you need to connect to the
    Servers console, this can be done as fallowing type the
    FQDN name of the server or IP fallowed by /console e.g:
    server.msft.local /console would attach you to the console

    hope this helps
    Enjoy Server based Computing
