comment How to enable the 2 concurrent (+1 console) sessions on Windows Server 2012
Yes, I recently found out I can configure it via Group Policy, but it sucks that they removed the nice MMC GUI for it, because it also simplifies setting an SSL/TLS/X.509 certificate for Remote Desktop too. Grrr.

What you're describing merely enables Remote Desktop for the server, it doesn't let you configure how Terminal Services works. By default (as you'll discover in your case), you can only login to a single session (if you open up a second instance of mstsc and connect to the same computer you'll force-disconnect your existing session), but if you enable concurrent sessions then you'll have a second session working concurrently. That's what I'm wanting to re-enable.

comment Search through text files in Server 2012 File Explorer
@Christian I'm not wanting to use command-line search because it's too fiddly - I just want the Explorer search box to work as-advertised.

Well that would be the original problem, but I'm finding that the Search box in Explorer doesn't work for any text files, including IIS server logs, trace logs, or even notes I've written myself in Notepad.

We need more information, such as what webserver you're using, because some servers, like Cassini, do not allow external connections. And then there's also your firewall configuration.
