Remote Desktop session

Remote Desktopping in XP connects you to the same session, whereas in 2003 it forces you to create a new connection, I find that really irritating since I could leave a job running at work that I might want to monitor from home. You can easily get around that my passing in the “/console” commandline parameter to the executable msrtc.exe. So the entire command would look like “%SystemRoot%\system32\mstsc.exe MyConn.RDP /Console”, this would connect you to an existing session if you are already logged in.
