Multiple remote sessions to XP Pro...

By LeonidasRomero ·
I have one XP Professional machine that currently hosts a monitoring program attached to a major refridgeration system. The software displays tempature information and other important statistics used by technicians, outside vendors and other maintenance personnel.

My needs are this: The machine is currently using a specific login, that has permissions to nothing else but the monitoring program and some of the dependent services needed to run it.

I need a solution by which multiple users can either Remote Desktop or connect to the machine and view the same main page at the same time.

Let me know if you need further details. Currently we are using Remote Desktop and PC Anywhere 10.5, though we are having problems with PC Anywhere dying when Remote Desktop is used. We do not know whether the new version 12 of Anywhere will solve those issues, but we really need a solution fast. I was thinking of using RAdmin, but I am not sure if that will give us what we need either.

Thanks,

Leo

Using VNC instead of Remote Desktop. XP Prof. version only support one user license. If you like you can try http://www.gotoservers.com, it can help you out. VNC have several open source versions you can choose, supports multiple session. So your issue can be solved easily, you don't need PC Anywhere also.

I have used VNC and haven't had the same experience in it's use. Right now, I am leading towards the RAdmin software, due to ease of setup, speed and the multiple connections to the same desktop. Thank you for the advice.

I agree with the VNC recommendation. You cannot use Remote Desktop at all - it is interfering with your pcAnywhere connection because it is designed to disconnect any local user when it connects. With VNC you can have multiple remote users connecting, and you also won't need pcAnywhere.

The flavor of VNC that we've liked the best is RealVNC: www.realvnc.com.

Hope this helps!
