For unix/linux implementation of vnc, this is relative easy to
configure, however, for msWindows it is not since VNC there just
replicates a running session.
My idea for your setup:
- use msWindows remote desktop to have different window-session running.
- use vnc to gain additional access to a running rdp-session.
- use the '/console' switch to remote-desktop to gain access to the
console of a machine (and put that one in lock).
- use different vnc-ports to connect to different sessions.
- start vnc in user-mode by a shortcut in start->programs->startup, and
give that shortcut the required parameters to open the proper port and such.
