Windows 7: Windows 7 RDC

04 May 2015   #1

Windows 7 RDC


I have the following systems:
PC1 (server)
PC2 (user1)
PC3 (user2)
up to 10 users

My client don't wish to install a Windows server and will use his PC1 (server) to connect to his Accounting/Stock program and backup data.
If I install Windows 7 on his PC1 (server) and have Remote Desktop Connection (which he wants) from each of his users, is that feasible? if so, is there any limit to the RD connection at the same time?

With Remote Desktop there can only be one active logged in user. That user may be logged in locally or by Remote Desktop but not both. If you need multiple simultaneous active users you would need a server OS with Terminal services and appropriate client licenses. Windows 7 by design does not support this.
