We are using Citrix Metafram XP V1.0, citrix sp 2, windows 2K sp 3.  The 
hardware is Dell PowerEdge 2550 with 1 GB RAM.  I do only publish applications 
to users and they use both the Citrix Program Neighborhood and Citrix Nfuse.  
Most of the users connect through 64 Kbps leased line.  This is a new 
installation with only 15 users.  I am running our old Winnt 4 terminal server 
w. Citrix Metaframe 1.0 beside this installation but there is no software 
connection.  The old server is without any problem.
The problem with the new one is that sometimes when users connect (does not 
matter if Nfuse or through the ordinary client) then they do not get the 
application window but in the ica connection center shows connection.  
Sometimes it is only the default blue screen that appears and it hangs up until 
closed, then the users get message regarding the disconnection as if he is 
closing a active session.  The administrator is able to send messae from the 
Citrix Management Console.  When I test this and look at the session 
information that is failing then we have only 2 image running, csrss.exe and 
winlogon.exe.  If the connection is not failing then I have 4 images, 
csrss.exe, winlogon.exe, wfshell.exe + the application that is running.  I have 
managed to have all the users connected at the same time without failing.  I do 
not get any errors int he Event viewer other than "not able to create printer 
....."  The same message appears  when the session is succeeded.
Sometimes if I use the Windows Terminal Services client I  get the logon window 
and then black or blue terminal window.  The only way to get back into the 
server is to reboot the server, after that it may be fine for a few weeks 
regarding the Wind. terminal Services client but the problem with the ICA 
client is happening every day. 
Does anyone have any clue ?
best regards
