How to allow multiple Remote Desktop Connection at a time for single Windows 10 device?

Hi,

Due to Covid-19 all of our users are working from home. Most of them have fiber connection but some users are not able to get the fiber connection to their home and using mobile internet for office purposes.

Connecting through mobile internet gives them below 5 Mbps internet speed which is not sufficient for our application. Our users are using a VPN to access the Windows server and the NAS in our main office.

So, we decide to have a common PC for which all the users can share but at the moment we have only 2 PC which are not sufficient. Instead of buying more PC we are now looking to enable multiple remote desktop connections so that all of the users can use these 2 PC to complete their work.

Thanks

You cannot connect multiple users at a same time to Windows 10. As per Windows 10, only a single RDP session is allowed at a time. When a second user try to connect a same PC, then the first user have to sign out.

For solve this problem you need to look for The RDP Wrapper Library, this project allows you to support multiple RDP sessions on Windows 10 without replacing the termsrv.dll file. This software serves as a layer between SCM (Service Control Manager) and the Remote Desktop Services. RDPWrap allows you to enable not only support for multiple simultaneous RDP connections, but also to enable the support of RDP Host on Windows 10 Home editions. RDP Wrapper does not make any changes to the termsrv.dll file, it’s just loading termsrv library with the changed parameters.

I second @Ashlay suggestion, RDPWrap is the best solution for your requirement or either you can try RDPWrap alternatives like Tiger VNC, Remmina or Beame.io etc.

Thanks
