    Hi,

    Today I experienced a problem with RDP connections as it's only two allowed, something went wrong and I couldn't log on because of connection limit:
    Question:
    - how to prevent this situations, is there any way to reserve one connection for administrator or any other solution in this case, maybe some synatx that I can run remotely from command prompt to disconnect users or remotely reboot the server.

    Regards

    the easiest thing to mind is only allow selected personnel.

    Logon with the console session mstsc/console and you will always be able to get in and boot other people off.

    should be an option within the settings to disconnect the connection if its been idle after x amount of minutes which will prevent this from occurring

    Hi man,

    If you have a terminal server set up you can do it through this, once connected to the remote server you can see who is logged on and if needs be send them an abusive message to F off their session!!! Or just delete the session yourself.

    You can force a third connection.

    MSTSC /v:<name or IP of the server> /console

    As others have said the console session (mstsc /console in Vista onwards or mstsc /admin in XP) will do the trick

    Also you can run Terminal Services Manager from another machine and connect to the remote server in order to disconnect/logoff sessions on it

    What operating system is the box running that you are remoting into?

    Hello,

    Thank you - mstsc /admin do the job;)

    there is only option to end the session what I cannot do as I run Counter Strike on the server and with this option it will be close as well ;)
