Using Terminal Services Configuration
1.
 Open Terminal Services Configuration.
 
2.
 In the console tree, click Connections.
 
3.
 In the details pane, right-click the connection for which you want to modify time-out settings, and then click Properties.
 
4.
 On the Sessions tab, above End a disconnected session, select the Override user settings check box. This allows you to configure time-out settings for the connection.
 
5.
 Configure the following time-out settings as appropriate:

• In End a disconnected session, select the maximum amount of time that a disconnected session remains on the server. When the time limit is reached, the disconnected session ends. When a session ends, it is permanently deleted from the server. Select Never to allow disconnected sessions to remain on the server indefinitely.
 
• In Active session limit, select the maximum amount of time that a user's session can remain active on the server. When the time limit is reached, either the user is disconnected from the session or the session ends. When a session ends, it is permanently deleted from the server. Select Never to allow the session to continue indefinitely.
 
• In Idle session limit, select the maximum amount of time that an idle session (a session without client activity) remains on the server. When the time limit is reached, either the user is disconnected from the session or the session ends. When a session ends, it is permanently deleted from the server. Select Never to allow idle sessions to remain on the server indefinitely.
 

Notes

• To open Terminal Services Configuration, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Terminal Services Configuration

Perhaps there is something wrong with your licence settings of W2K3 server.
How many users are on your system and can you dertermine the number of connected users at once before users getting disconnected ?

Thank you for your reply,
I have installed all of the licenses and maybe you have the answer, please explain how to check the integrity of the license settings, I may be overlooking something - I reguraly look at TS Licensing in Administrator Tools. I did the build
of the OS and istalled Terminal Servier and am Domain Admin. There are 165 liicensed users. There usually 50 concurrent users. I have determined the capcity of the machine before purchasing it. It can handle up to 200
concurrent users and memory and cpu are underutilized consistently. Capacity is not a problem. I had suspected some corruption of layers 2,3,and 4 of the TCP/IP stack but haven't pursued that route. Can you further clarify license settings
because I have been checking them and perhaps looking in the wrong place. I appreciate you effort - the problem is causing annoyance in the usercommunity. I gratefully apprexiate yyour help. Hope we can continue this dialogue to resolve tha matter.
