Enable/Disable Multiple RDP Sessions

So the caveat to this article is that this is specifically for Windows Servers. If you’re trying to enable multiple RDP sessions on Windows 10 or 11, you’ll need to do some further googling to find out how to do that – as this alone won’t be enough.

Enable Multiple RDP Sessions

  1. Log into the server you are trying to enable multiple Remote Desktop sessions on.
  2. Click on the start menu button, type “gpedit.msc” and open it.
  3. Navigate to ‘Computer Configuration’ -> ‘Administrative Templates’ -> ‘Windows Components’ -> ‘Remote Desktop Services’ -> ‘Remote Desktop Session Host’ -> ‘Connections’.
  4. Set “Restrict Remote Desktop Services user to a single Remote Desktop Services session” to ‘Disabled’.
  5. Double-click on “Limit number of connections” and set the value of the RD Maximum Connections allowed to ‘999999’.
