Default RDP Session Monitoring on Server 2003

We have a Windows 2003 terminal server and we need to be able to monitor the various remote desktop sessions and what they're doing (there are some remote users logging in via VPN), and check all connected remote desktop sessions that are Active or Inactive so that we can kill them cleanly if necessary, without having to use the qwinsta/rwinsta utilities or logging directly onto the server and using Terminal Services Management.

Does anyone know of any 3rd-party shareware / freeware that will do this job through a graphical interface, and possibly show the various processes / applications in use for the various sessions as well as time active / idle?

None that I know of in server 2003 I think if you have a 2012 server you can do it from there but I'm not 100% about that as I have not tried to do it

Not totally sure about this, but you might be able to download the Terminal Services Management console addon and just connect to your terminal services server using that (from a client machine).

If the server is setup as a true terminal server (>2 active sessions), then it should have the Terminal Services Manager preinstalled.

Connect to another session: Terminal Services
