Me and a friend of mine are using a remote Windows 10 Professional machine together. Simultaneous remote connection are not supported, so every time I try to log in and he is logged in, I have to text him to get verification that he is not using it anymore and vice versa.
The Windows 10 Professional machine, his and my computer are all in the same LAN. It would be ideal to have some kind of command line tool to ping the remote computer and get information about the current session. Of course it makes no sense to get the same information that a remote connection attempt would provide
Heres my question, how would I set up a service that the operator of the remote PC can use to signal that he is still using the pc just by setting of a signal (maybe just a line in a text file, or a tick in a GUI, or a flag in a database). Which then can be pulled from either of us with our own computers.
I know that the amount of effort is not equal to the actual benefits a solution like that would provide.
