Specs: Windows Web Server 2008

Is there any way to allow two people to be SIMULTANEOUSLY logged on through Remote Desktop Connection using the SAME user account (e.g. Administrator)?

Thank you in advance!

It would be crazy to allow anyone to RDP in as administrator unless you like killing your server. One simple mistake and you are toast. Even Microsoft recommends you don't user admin level accounts for anything. You use run as to start processes as an administrator.

No, that would be a big security whole but yes there is a way but it is not sexy. I use VPN on my server "Yes its a security issue I know" and RDP. This way my Administrative staff can be in while I am in because I am not running a RDP terminal but rather I am logged directly into the main terminal.

To make it more secure, I have made the VPN to only except connections from my IP and it is passworded.
