Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In Windows there is RDP. You cannot use RDP like VNC to see what is going on a screen, it is designed to start a session in a PC and work on it.

In Windows Server you can have multiple sessions simultaneously, so multiple users can work on the server.

My question is: how can I accomplish that on Mac? How can I have an iMac and let two users connect to it simultaneously to different sessions?

Will the users be using the same or different user accounts? –  CajunLuke Mar 7 '12 at 1:19
    
It really doesn't matter. But users should see different desktops with different things, like in Windows –  Ricardo Polo Mar 7 '12 at 1:20

If you have OSX 10.7 installed, there is a new feature in screen sharing to allow this. You can now log into an existing session that's open on the computer, or another session in the background, running in parallel. It's similar to what Terminal Server provides (when used with multiple accounts), only free.
