XP Pro is not a good choice for being a terminal server for windows. It
has a maximum connection limit of 4 clients. If it detectes the fifth
client, it will disconnect the first and keep rolling through clients
like that. Once it decides too many terminals are trying to connect, it
turns off the terminal connection service. When you reboot you are
resetting the terminal counting process.

If you are going to have more than 4 client total, connecting to a
windows machine, it must be a windows server machine with Microsoft
Terminal Services and an appropriate number of client licenses.
