I am using a 3 Proficy Web Server with 18 sessions maximum on each. I am utilising the windows NLB but it seems that it is not aware of the 18 sessions limit on my servers. Can I limit the number of sessions on each member of the NLB. I am using windows Server 2008

Regards

Unless something has changed with NLB, No.  NLB is a very simple implementation of load balancing and does not understand or keep track of the number of sessions/connections to servers.

You need something that is more intelligent which typically means hardware load balancers such as Kemp or BigIP's F5.
