    I have windows server 2003 running terminal services, and when I remote desktop to it - this is what happens

    1st connect - everything's fine, runs smoothly
    2nd conect - message "could not connect to remote computer, check connections..."
    3rd connect - "the remote computer ended the connection"

    Help me. I am going out of my mind. I have to restart the server everytime this happens.

    I regularly need to connect to the server, and its very annoying.


    Cheers

    What does the terminal services manager say when your connecting? Is this on the same PC each time? Are all instances open at the same time or seperately? Windows 2003 defaultly only allows 2 connctions until you enable the Terminal Services licensing. Have you ensured that everyone is actually getting disconnected by the Terminal Services manager when they truely disconnect?

    can't read the terminal services manager because I can't get into it.

    It allows only one connection ever. If the session is minimized, closed, logged off - it still will not allow any more connections.

    Um if you can't get into your Terminal services manager then I would start looking at whats going on with your Terminal Services on the W2K3 box all together.


    read here for a NICE articale on how TS works and the whole thing. You may want to address not being able to get into your terminal services managers before you troubleshoot your own connection in its probably related -

    Sorry, stupid thing to say. What I meant to say was that

    When it has kicked me off the server, I cant access the manager because Im not connected. I dont have the right monitor atm, but Ive ordered a non dvi one so I can log on locally.

    Thanks anyways

    Eek let me know what you see. Also look at your Terminal services manager the first time you connect then try and connect from another PC for the second one and then use the first PC to check out the manager... this hsould give you morei nput to work with in diagnosing.
