The number of client connections is limited to 10, does this count the host
console and network print servers?

This is inbound SMB based connections only.
So the local console does not count.

that's ten connections within 1 second or maybe quicker, I forget exact. So
basically ten connections trying to connect at one moment in time will flag
windows to block them - - you would not normally access ten connections all
at the same moment - but a rapid fire spyware might.

I got that. I'm being a bit more picky. Does the use of print servers count
as a connection? The KB makes it sound as if it does and since print servers
tend to be very talkative 3 print servers would take 3 connections and
probably never let them go. If users map a drive the connection is
constantly being "pinged" (for lack of a better word) so those connections
would probably be near constant.

At least that's my thinking on it.

This is INBOUND connection limits.
If you have a mapping on your PC to an extrenal print server then that does
not count.
If you share that printer from your machine then only up to 10 SMB
connections can be made to your machine at any one time.
