Terminal services

By Navjun ·
WHen I try to connect to terminal services in the satelite office I get an error stating that TS has exceeded the maximum number of connections
I know I'm the only one connecting and TS is on an alternate port so I'm no so worried about Hackers, So this leaves me with TS having an internal peroblem. So I thought if I Restart TS everything will be fine. fortunatly I have Telnet Access to that server so when I try to use net Stop "terminal services" it tells me I'm not able to do that with that service.

Can anyone help me

thank you!!

Go to Terminal Services Manager. Locate the server and look at the sessions that are listed. Since you have this configured for remote administration, you only have one connection. The Microsoft TS client used RDP. Locate the RDP connection and disconnect any connections showing. You can also reset any connections that are hung. The RDP should show Listen as the state.
This is the tool for remotely managing all of the TS servers in your environment.

change the options in your ts client to the same as the one you used before. This will allow you to connect back again, provided the previous connections are in disconnect state and not in the connected state still.

Else have somebody manually restart the server and install vnc or another remote administrator tool one the server.

There are two things happening. First, Microsoft has built into 2000 server a limit of 2 TS licenses. More can be purchased, but two are there for administrative purposes. Every time you want to 'disconnect' you MUST click on the Start Button, select 'Shut Down'. Then from the list select 'Log Off ......' This will close the TS session. What I suspect, when you have been disconnecting, you clicked on the 'X' in the upper right hand of the window. By doing this, the TS session remains running. In the TS configuration, you can set the parameters so that on a disconnect, the TS session will be reset after a period of time.
Also, Terminal Services 'cannot' be stopped once they are runnning. If you set the service to manual, and then reboot the server, you will be able to start TS. But once it is started, it is not possible to stop, except to re-boot.

Hope this explaination helps.

Best of luck.
