Increasing the number of concurrent remote desktop connections is easy. Do the following steps:
- Go to “Start” => “Administration Tools” => “Terminal Services Configuration”
- Opened up the “Properties” of “RDP-tcp” in the connections tree and selected the “Network Adapter” tab:
- “Unlimited connections” is grayed out so in “Maximum connections”, increase the value to whatever value you want.
A word of advice though, if you will notice that you cannot go above the value of 2, this is a licensing issue. Without purchasing Terminal Services CALs, you are limited to at most 2 Remote Desktop connections. So you may need to possibly upgrade your license or get new ones in order to accommodate the maximum number of connections that you want.
