Terminal Server "Piggyback" Printers

By artcabot ·
We keep getting Terminal Server 2000 assigning two sessions to the same printer, and the printers aren't even in the same office (sometimes not even in the same state!). For example, I'll see "DeskJet 680C/KEN/Session 8/ART/Session 4".

Anybody know what's happening and how to fix it?

Session time-out much to loooong? Put it on disconnect.

It still made a lot of sense, and since I did a little bit of the tuning suggested, it seems to have stopped (at least in frequency). Thanks for the assist.

At first the timeout answer seemed reasonable, but then I saw this happen first thing this morning when, I think, both sessions on the "piggyback" had just started. I don't want to end a session when they've just disconnected to let a long report compile. Perhaps I misunderstood your answer. Currently the terminal server is set to end a session after it's been disconnected or idle for three hours.
