Multiple users seeing the same remote desktop session?

Specs: Windows Server 2008
Hi everyone,

Is there any way with Windows Server 2008 that I can have multiple people log into the same remote desktop session for a user? I don't mean multiple logins under the same account, like what I want is a way that 2 or 3 people can connect using remote desktop, but everyone sees the same thing, so sees the mouse being moved from another user etc. Is that possible or does that require some 3rd party type software to provide that kind of funcitonality?

Not possible with Remote Desktop or similiar software.

There is software for doing show and tell meetings and this feature is usually referred to as a white board.

Google for more info

Agreed that it isn't possible with the Remote Desktop feature, but you can accomplish this with a VNC server. TightVNC has the ability to allow multiple people connect to the desktop and either have control, or only view, or some control and some view. The only drawback is that this can only share one desktop per server. You couldn't have multiple independent desktops going like you could with RDP.
