Hi,

No, that would be a violation of your license for one O/S.

Sorry

Legitimately? No.
Otherwise? Yes.
Would you want to? Probably not.
At least not too many users at once.

Nothing to be sorry about as I see it:


* Installation and use. You may install, use, access,
display and run one copy of the Product on a single
computer, such as a workstation, terminal or other device
("Workstation Computer"). The Product may not be used
by more than two (2) processors at any one time on any
single Workstation Computer. You may permit a maximum
of ten (10) computers or other electronic devices (each
a "Device") to connect to the Workstation Computer to
utilize the services of the Product solely for File and
Print services, Internet Information Services, and remote
access (including connection sharing and telephony
services). The ten connection maximum includes any
indirect connections made through "multiplexing" or other
software or hardware which pools or aggregates
connections. Except as otherwise permitted by the
NetMeeting, Remote Assistance, and Remote Desktop
features described below, you may not use the Product
to permit any Device to use, access, display or run other
executable software residing on the Workstation Computer,
nor may you permit any Device to use, access, display,
or run the Product or Product's user interface, unless
the Device has a separate license for the Product.

and...

* NetMeeting/Remote Assistance/Remote Desktop Features. The
Product contains NetMeeting, Remote Assistance, and
Remote Desktop technologies that enable the Product or
other applications installed on the Workstation Computer
to be used remotely between two or more computers, even
if the Product or application is installed on only one
Workstation Computer. You may use NetMeeting, Remote
Assistance, and Remote Desktop with all Microsoft products;
provided however, use of these technologies with
certain Microsoft products may require an additional
license. For Microsoft and non-Microsoft products, you
should consult the license agreement accompanying the
applicable product or contact the applicable licensor
to determine whether use of NetMeeting, Remote
Assistance, or Remote Desktop is permitted without an
additional license.

Multiple connections should be perfectly legal. I have not tried it
though, other then to 2003 server. How would you do it to XP Pro?
