I would like to be able to log in to my office computer remotely into my windows user account, while at the same time that my assistant could log into the same computer remotely (which has remotulities host installed) and access her user account. We will have some files on my user account shared, so we would communicate to make sure we are not trying to access the same files at the same time. Please let us know if this is possible and if so, how to set it up or where we can find the information to do so.

Also, is there a log of remote access log ins, e.g. that records the IP address that the log ins come from?

Hello Laurel,

Thank you for your message.

What you are describing is terminal sessions and is provided by Microsoft Terminal Services.

While Remote Utilities allows you to switch between already existing terminal sessions, it has no means of creating terminal sessions or being run as a terminal server. It's a different class of software with different licensing.

Hope that helps.
