Allow multiple simultaneous html5 vpn users
Basically we need the ability to establish a pool of html 5 connections so more than one user can use the html5 portal at a time using rdp or any other protocol.
We are replacing an old SonicWall+TMG with a new Sophos UTM, and the HTML5 Portal is a basic feature for external colleagues. It absolutely needs to work with more than one session! Other way the old SonicWall will be used again... :(

We too were under the impression that multiple users could use a connection simultaneously (not 'shared session'), since they log in using their own credentials. We have a terminal server that about 60 people can access. I've now had to create 60 duplicates of the Terminal Server connection so should more than one person at a time want to use it they can.
With the guide saying 'Note that the number of connections is limited to 100.', we'll hit this limit pretty quickly, unless these can be consolidated down to 1 connection that multiple people can use simultaneously.
We had actually rolled this out under the assumption this was already the case (ala Windows SBS Remote Access Portal). Only after introduction did we realize this is limited to 1 connection per server... We have a farm of 23 TS servers and a single HTML5 connection directed to the session broker which initially appeared to work, but as the remote users began to adopt this new system it became obvious this was a huge mistake!

It would be extremely useful to allow multiple people access to remote desktop servers via the portal.
