Console session Vs remote session RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the difference between a console session and an RDP ( session? I haven't had to use this in a while and forgot. Also, what is the number of each concurrent session on Windows 2003+ servers?

     

    Thanks

    The number of concurrent session depends on Terminal Service mode. If it’s Remote Desktop for Administration mode, one console session and two RDP sessions are allowed. 

     

    If it’s Remote Desktop for Application mode, the number depends on the number of TS ACL.
