Planning a Windows MultiPoint Server 2010 Deployment
Updated: November 14, 2012
Windows MultiPoint Server 2010 enables multiple stations to be connected to one computer. Multiple users can then share one computer at the same time. Each station consists of a station hub, monitor, keyboard, and mouse. MultiPoint Server includes the MultiPoint Manager application, which helps you, as an administrative user, to monitor and manage MultiPoint Server stations.
