Is it possible to use Vista locally and remotely at the same time?

Using Windows Vista Business, is it possible to have a user sitting at the machine using it, and another user simultaneously logged into a different user account over remote desktop?

The Windows Vista Business license limits the number of users able to use the OS at a single time to 1. For this reason, any time you try to log in remotely, it automatically logs out the local user. If you want to allow multiple users to log in via RDP you will need Terminal Services on a server machine.

Nativity Windows Vista does not allow for Concurrent sessions. So the answer is No you cant log in to the physical machine and a Remote desktop from another machine with different accounts. However, this being the world of Microsoft there are those who have figured out how to do this, see this artical.
