Allowing concurrent user terminal sessions on windows 2008

We had a server running windows 2008, we were several persons working on the same machine at the same time, we all were using one user credentials. Each time one of us was connecting remotely to the server, it was disconnecting the other person who was working at that time, so only 1 session was allowed per user on the server

I was looking for the option to enable multiple sessions per user, doing some search, finally i found it

Click on start
Type "Remote desktop session host configuration" and hit enter
You will find an option on the screen that says "Restrict each user to a single session"

Double click that option, and uncheck this option and click OK

Then you will be able to connect several users remotely to windows 2008 using the same user credentials
