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.
