you can't logoff the user session when  user logging off or close this application.

by default, workspace control and session sharing will ensure the same user will get his disconnected or connected sessions reside on other merchines.

you can disable workspace control in web interface and try.

Its a global config, right . Is it possble to disable this for a particular user / group ?

You can configure the timeout settings based on your requirement.
workspace control setting is reside in web interface management console.
just select the site your client use, and in the right panel, you can find the workspace control memu.

sekarc4u provide the KB article describe how to set the timeout after the user disconnect from the server.

yes, its a global config, and will affect all the user connect to the site you modified.
all these secenario are server related, so no way to get it only for particular user/group except modify the web interface site code. not recommend.
how sekarc4u explained ... best way is to end the user-session, so the next session can't reconnect.
best way to do this is tuning the session timeouts (logoff after 1 minute disconnected)
don't enable session lingering. sl hold the session up, so a fast reconnect with the next application is possible.

by the way ... why you want reuse a existing session ... it's faster than creating a new session.
