Trouble with Remote Desktop Connection

P: 31
Hello all.

I get this error when I try to logon to a server which I could login to before.

I get the following error: -
"The remote session was disconnected because there are no Terminal Server client access licenses available for this computer.
Please contact the server administrator."

Kindly tell me how to correct this error.

I would say that there are only so many seats available for connections and they are all being used. If there are multiple people logged on, you may have to wait till one hops off.

Thanks for the response but this cannot be the problem since I can logon from a different machine.

It might be setup up...well not setup to allow access from that computer. The server has so many CALs

if you can access it from one machine and not the other my guess is its the guest machine thats the problem not the host/server.

check you security setting etc..


i have never had this problem... be interested to know what the problem was when you finally sort it out...

The seems to be with the client/server, the server might be setup per device and all the CALs have been used up so that computer isn't allowed to access the server.

how many CALs does the server own/have and how many computers are there?

What are CALs? I am not sure of the server setup. Just tell me what they are and I will find out.

CAL -> Client Access Licenses

without them the server will refuse the connection.

Keep in mind that the server could also be set up by USER and or IP...

Here at my office thatís how we allow users to connect it pretty much a security thing...

So if the computer your trying to login at might not be on the list for an allowed connection.

If it is not set up like this then like everyone has suggested how many CALs are allowed?
