    anyone know a way around only 10 concurent connections allowed on Windows 2000 prof... In 2000 server you can have unlimited.

    It can be done in XP SP2 PRO - if you decide to upgrade it, let me know, I'll give you the necessary files.

    Ya, like shakes said, It's doable but only on Windows XP Sp2...

    The files are actually legal, nothing has been hacked by someone, it used to be part of a pre-release version of Service Pack 2 and they took it off on release.

    Anyhow, if you ever upgrade to XP, you can basically have close to a Windows 2003 Server... minus quite a few features but still...

    I wouldn't say it's "legal" because it certainly is not. The EULA doesn't allow it. There may be a "workaround" but once again... not "legal."

    If you are thinking of the limitation this passes: www.lvllord.de it isn't the same one.
    You will have to upgrade to Windows 2000 Server etc. or look for a different os solution (ie linux if it is just file storage.)
