Windows Live Mesh 2011

Windows Live MeshMicrosoft released Windows Live Mesh 2011 last year but I did really spend a lot of attention to it. Until this weekend I needed to conneced to my Lab but VPN didn’t work so I didn’t really had a chance to do that. But after sometime I realized that I have a management computer installed with Windows Live Mesh and I could connect to it using Windows Live Mesh Remote Desktop. This really saved my weekend.

Windows Live Mesh 2011 even more cool features

  • Sync between computers
  • Sync program settings

  • Connect remotely to other Computers

 



Windows Server 2008: Allow multiple Remote Desktop sessions per user

In Windows Server 2003 you could have multiple Remote Desktop session with the same user. In Windows Server 2008 this is not possible by default. If you login with the same user account the first session will be taken over by second session.

But you can allow multiple Remote Desktop sessions per user by changing a registry key.

  1. Start regedit
  2. Check out the follwoing registry key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer
  3. If the fSingleSessionPerUser value doesn’t exist, create a new DWORD value named fSingleSessionPerUser
  4. Open the fSingleSessionPerUser value. The possible values for this setting are as follows:
    0x0 Allow multiple sessions per user
    0x1 Force each user to a single session
  5. save this
