Enabling multiple VMRC client connections with Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1

I’ve just been building some virtual machines and I wanted to run multiple copies of the Virtual Machine Remote Control (VMRC) client to monitor progress (they just seem more responsive than the administration website). Each time I connected the VMRC client, I was presented with the following message:

Connection to the VM stopped as multiple connections are disabled

It turns out that Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 has disabled multiple VMRC connections as a security precaution. It’s just a simple checkbox on the VMRC server properties to re-enable but useful to know about.
