How To Terminate Idle Remote Desktop RDP Sessions

how-to-terminate-idle-rdp-sessions-in-windows-server-keyframeWhen RDP Sessions are all in use,  additional users cannot connect. In this video I'll show you how to automatically log off idle sessions.

Windows Servers have traditionally come with two Remote Desktop RDP Administrator licenses so that administrators can access the server.   

Additional Remote Desktop (RDP) CALs (Client Access Licenses) can be added to Windows Server installations but  come at a cost.  They are more than $160 CAD for the RDP CAL and additionally a User CAL (+$50 CAD) is required.   

When users leave their sessions open and idle, those licenses cannot be used by other users.  Automatically terminating idle sessions will help you use your licenses more effectively.

HELIA does install configure and support Windows services for business.  To learn more about Windows servers and why they are important for your business, or to find out how how to add licenses to your Windows Server,  contact us at or visit us at
