For Windows XP Professional, the maximum number of other computers that are permitted to simultaneously connect over the network is ten. This limit includes all transports and resource sharing protocols combined. For Windows XP Home Edition, the maximum number of other computers that are permitted to simultaneously connect over the network is five. This limit is the number of simultaneous sessions from other computers the system is permitted to host. This limit does not apply to the use of administrative tools that attach from a remote computer.

You should be good to go now.

I have a caffee and there are 10 computers with a server , and shared through win xp share folder.... connected through a wired router... each system has a indudial log n through sify broad band I am stuck...


In addition to Ameerm advice be aware that some folders even though shared will not be available to other users as this is part of how XP Pro works.

The only way to properly access those would be via remote desktop which would allow you acess to any machine set up for that purpose.

XP Pro has remote desktop installed but you may need to enable it and add the remote user to the admin profiles on other machines also.

Too many connections win xp


In Windows XP Professional the maximum is 10, but you can set this to a lower value. You can use the Shared Folders snap-in to determine the maximum number of users that are permitted to access a folder. In the Shared Folders details pane, click the shared folder for which you want to determine the maximum number of concurrent users who can access the folder. On the Action menu, click Properties, displaying the Properties dialog box for the shared folder. The General tab shows you the user limit. Remember Win SP the maximus is 10. You can also use the Shared Folders snap-in to determine if the max numberof users that are permitted to access a folder has be reached.

Determine the number of connections to the share and the max connections allowed. If the max number of connections has already been made, the user cannot connect to the shared resource.
