I installed the server software on a Debian Lenny server.  The USB printer is physically attached to the server.

I then installed the Windows client on a Windows XP SP3 laptop.  The printer appeared and I was able to print to the printer remotely.  I was very happy.

I then installed the Windows client on a second Windows XP SP3 laptop.  I tried to attach the printer but received an error.  I then went back to the first computer and detached the printer.  Then I could attach the printer to the second computer.

Is this the intended behavior?  I was hoping to get functionality similar to a print server from this software.  However, it appears that it can only be connected virtually to one machine at a time.  Is that correct?

If so, how could I automate or script the attach/detach procedures?
