One of our clients currently has a network of WYSE stations connected to a Windows 2003 Server.  The issue is: When a user doesn't log off - another user logs into a different station and their information is on the screen. Is there any way to set a "kill-session" after a set amount of time - or some way of starting a new session rather than restoring a previous session from a different WYSE?

On Terminal Services side, you can set session timeouts in several places:
  • Per-user (screenshot 1): Session tab in user properties in Active Directory Users and Computers (see Screenshot 1). You can set time limits and also restrict users to only be able to reconnect from the same client.
  • Per server (screenshot 2): On your terminal server, Start->Administrative Tools->Terminal Services Configuration. Go to Connections in the left pane, right-click on RDP-Tcp and select Properties. On Sessions tab you can set limits that will over-ride per-user settings.
  • Group policy: let me know if you need information about this
On Wyse side, you can also control reconnection behaviour. Exact steps depend on

On Wyse side, you can also control reconnection behaviour. Exact steps depend on the type of Wyse terminal you are using. For example, on Wyse ThinOS (WTOS), you can set Reconnect={yes, no} in wnos.ini.
