    Unhappy Networking


    I have 11 units running on XP. I have no problem sharing files except for 1 PC. I've turned off all firewalls. I've done ping tests to and from this PC and there seem to be no problem.

    Is it possible that my network has limited me to 10 PCs? I barely recall reading something like this but I'm not sure. Hope You can help me.

    I don't know if this is your problem or not. If you have one XP Pro machine acting as a server you'll cap out at 10 concurrent connections.

    You can view how many connections are made on the machine by righ clicking 'My Computer' and selecting 'manage' and look at 'Shared Folders' and then look into 'Sessions'.

    How exactly do I setup one PC as a server?
