Hi @siva-8931

If you want more than 2 concurrent connections, by default you must pay for RDS CALs to connect for multiple RDP sessions.

If You want can online purchase CALs from the Microsoft store or other 3rd party Microsoft resellers.

Hi @siva-8931

By default Windows server will onlly allow two concurrent RDP sessions, if you want to enable more sessions, you will need to install the RDS roles and assign the user CAL licenses to support the required number of sessions.
