I would like to remotely access - by two different users simultaneously - a powerful workstation running Windows 10 Pro. Normally, only one concurrent remote desktop protocol (RDP) session is allowed under Windows 10. However, I read that one can use Hyper-V to create a Windows 10 virtual machine (VM) on the Windows 10 host, and then the two users can simultaneously RDP into each of the two Windows machines: 1) the original host, and 2) the VM.
So, in Hyper-V I created a new Windows 10 VM and an external VM switch. But I don't know how to use Remote Desktop Connection to remotely access the VM. Does the VM need its own IP address (separate from that of the host)? How do I learn or assign that separate IP address?
Many thanks in advance! Tom
Problem Solved! Answer:
It IS as simple as music2myear suggested. However, because I'm in a tightly buttoned-down University computing environment, network connectivity (and an IP address via our DHCP service) was unavailable until the new VM was properly registered with the University's host database. After that, oddly, the VM was still unable to connect to the internet until I switched from my external virtual switch to the default switch. After demonstrating internet connectivity from the VM, I then switched back to the new external virtual switch, which (finally!) allowed me to access the VM via Remote Desktop Connection (after having first allowing remote connections via System/Properties tab/Remote Desktop). Now two separate users can simultaneously access remotely and use this workstation.
