I have three computers A, B, C, each running Windows XP Professional. They
are connected by 100 MB/s LAN, and have been "seeing" one another by TCP/IP
in a workgroup. I have three window applications W1, W2, W3 in Computer A.

(a) First I go to Computer A, and launch the application W1, so it is
displayed at the monitor for computer A. Note W1 application also starts
another application "engine".

(b) Then I go to Computer B. I want to launch application W2 at Computer A,
"remotely", using Remote Desktop, or Terminal Service. But I do not want to
display W2 application at the computer A's monitor. Instead I want
application W2 to display at computer B's monitor.

(c) Then I go to Computer C. I want to launch application W3 at Computer A,
"remotely", using Remote Desktop, or Terminal Service. But I do not want to
display W3 application at the computer A's monitor. Instead I want
application W3 to display at computer C's monitor.

After all these are set up. Computer A runs application W1, W2, W3. They are
doing DDE (dynamic data exchange) with "engine" at Computer A. But W2, and W3
are hiding from the user's view at Computer A's monitor.

At the same time, Computer B's monitor displays W2 remotely, and computer
C's monitor display W3 remotely.
My questions are:

(1) Can the above be setup using current Window XP - SP2 ?
(2) If not, can the configuration be set up using Window Server 2003 at
Computer A, and XP at B, and C ?

If it is possible to do the above configurations, please advise where can I
find more detailed technical information.

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi Wilson, sorry but XP is limited to only one RDP connection even with SP2,
so your scenario won't work. As soon as Computer B connects remotely to
computer A to run app W2, computer A will lock out its console user leaving
app W1 still running. But Computer C won't be able to connect at all to run
app W3 on computer A.

Running Windows Server 2003 on computer A can get around this though as it
will allow 2 RDP connections *and* leave the console running on A. I just
tried this with three machines in a workgroup:
A runs W2K3 and I start Notepad on it.
B runs XP and I connect remotely to A and run Wordpad on it
C runs W2K Pro and I connect remotely to A and run Paint on it
Go back on A and I can still access the console.

Hope that helps.
