How do I limit the number of RDP sessions based on client computer name or IP? I've several clients using RDP's to connect to a server, all with the same username, so I can't restrict based on username. I would like to allow only one RDP session from a particular computer.

There is no built-in feature to limit the number of remote desktop sessions that originate from each PC or ip address. To do this you would need to write your own script or program. Windows is designed primarily for each person to have a unique user name and password.

took me a bit to remember how to do this but...
there is a setting in the termenal service configuration under server settings
Restrict each user to one session... change that no to a yes... and your good to go.
