    Can anyone tell me what the max number of users to access a computer running XP Pro or Home would be (via network)? This would not be file sharing, but actually loggin into or accessing the computer itself via a small network. I was told that it was five and that the XP OS would not allow any more than that, would have to go to a server based OS for larger numbers.
    Any assistance would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    I believe it's actually 10 connections at the same time. It's the same in XP and 2000

    Edit: And from what I know there is no way to up that even through a registry change.
