    allow multiple remote desktop connections

    By default, it seems there are only 2 remote desktop connections allowed to a Windows server. If I need more, for example, up to 10 connections at the same time, how to do that?

    Thank you.

    Alternatively, if this is an option for you, use VNC.

    Yes this is a restriction to prevent you from using it as a terminal server. Max 2 connections is all you should need for remote administration, this is why MS does this. As Jackpx said, you'll need to buy a licence for more connections.

    Along with two normal terminal services login, you also have an option for a console login. So, without purchasing additional licenses, 3 people can access the server using RDP at a time.
