OK - so I installed windows 2003 server on my desktop, which is in the basement. I have a laptop upstairs (xp) which I want to connect to the desktop over remote desktop. This is working ok (networking, etc), except the way that 2003 server is working, it's making it that when I log in from the laptop over remote desktop, it effectively creates a 'new session', meaning that no applications are open etc. What I actually want to do is to 'take over' the session that I had started when I was in the basement. If I were to disconnect/log off from the remote desktop and go to the basement, I would want to be able to continue. (Basically that I have one 'session' and that no matter whether I am on the laptop over remote connection or the desktop itself that I see everything the same). This used to be the way it worked when I had XP on the desktop. How do I make 2003 server behave the same way? (I realize that this sort of goes against the purpose of a server operating system but...)
Some other things to note:
- I am logged in as the Administrator user.
- The reason I installed 2003 enterprise server is that I wanted to have the upgraded IIS, etc.
