Enabling multiple concurrent connections in Remote Desktop means you can connect multiple computers to your main computer to access them remotely at the same time. This is possible using a modified version of the program with a patch. There are several different sources from which you can download this patch. Once installed, you can use different accounts on the same computer at the same time. You will also be able to use the computers remotely without having the local users logged off.
