Hi.
I am using Remote Desktop a lot against a specific computer.
But I receive the following message: "You already have an active Remote
Desktop connection on the computer.
Please select one of the following:"
My question is as follows. How can I stop one of the connection without
re-starting the computer.

Looking forward to a solution.

By design you can only have on RDP session connected at a time to a XP Pro
box...

But I was not specific enough. This error message appears when I am
connection to a Windows2003 server.

I get this message on our 2000 server. The first option is to purchase more
Terminal Server licenses if more than than two people are needed access to
the server remotely. The other option is to select one of the two sessions
that it lists and continue on with that session. (Not sure if this method
still works with 2003 though). From there you can log off and log back in
properly if you need to have scripts re-run for any reason.

>Go to the physical Windows Server... bring up task manager... you will find a couple of user processeses there with "disconnected" next to them. Log them off (they then disappear from task manager) and then it is sorted ! I get this problem when I have RDC from 2 different XP machines to the same server.

Hope that helps
