I am having a strange requirement from my employer that I am not sure how to actually solve.
We have an application that works in a client <-> server mode. The client logs in to a server, and afterwards the application will do its job (mainly data processing).
Only one username / password combo has been given to us to login. So far, only one statistician has used the app so this has not been a problem. Now, we have employed three more people, all of them will need to use the same app.
The problem is that if a second user logs in, every client loged with the same user/pass combo will be disconnected. My first answer was to ask if we could get more accounts for us. Unfortunately, that option was not acceptable to my employer (probably price, contract agreements...). He is willing to do anything else. I have even gotten a brand new server with Windows Server 2008 for this purpose.
Is there anything I can do about this issue? I have read a little about Microsoft VDI, will that be a viable alternative?
Note that I do not have much experience in this area, I am mainly a developer for this company.
