I want to know, if it is possible to reduce the session time, in XP Pro, for holding a client connection. We seem to reach the maximum limit for number of clients XP Pro can hanlde that's 10 soon, however, this is not because the client  has a long connection, but because, the server Pro, holds the session, long after the client has disconnected. Is there any way to release the connection from the server.

In the above discussion,  LucF provided a link to a specific Microsoft article about changing connection timeouts, which is here:;en-us;314882
