How's it going Jorge? This is new to me! Or at least I don't remember trying to share a session like this. It will come in handy for sure!

A question for you.  Can this work on a windows XP workstation?  If I want to share a windows XP workstation that I have remotely logged in, can I do that?

@indupriya, I believe it also works in XP. Not sure if limited to Pro edition or not though.

Very handy post, thanks! Was banging my head about how to share a session until I came across this. From your description, it sounds like you need a 2nd session to be able to control the first one, correct? This works for me, but do you know of a way to share a single session without starting a 2nd one? Thanks, Adrian

Adrian, thanks for commenting and I'm glad you found it useful! Yes, the second session needs to be established in order to connect to it. Alternatively if you have Remote Server Administration Tools (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee449475(v=ws.10).aspx) installed, you can actually view existing connections and choose to connect to existing sessions as well.

There's an easier way. Just RDP to the same server and open the task manager, then go to the users tab and right click on any name in there and choose "Remote Control" HOWEVER: It's kinda broken win Windows Server 2008. It KILLS the target session. Something due to an incompatibility with client encryption or color optimization settings. * If someone knows how to fix this easily I would be very interested as I use this ALL the time in earlier versions.

Thanks Don, you're correct you can do that method as well. I wasn't aware of that disconnect bug in 2008. Have you tested/verified that's still an issue in Server 2008 R2?

Good post, thanks. Is there a way for the person sharing the session to kick the viewer off?

Additional: a way to kick the viewer off that does not involve ending their session that is .... :)
