Maybe Terminal Services is installed in Remote Administration mode?
That allows for a maximum of 2 concurrent connections, by default
only to Administrators, with no additionalicensing requirements.
If you need more than 2 concurrent connections, you have to switch
to Application Server mode, but then you also need a TS Licensing
Server and TS CALs for every client that connects.
Check your EventLog for more info. Also check Control Panel -
Licensing applet. Your 5 server CALs are also used when making
connections to shared folders on the server, or authentication, so
you could be out of server CALs anyway.
