    What is the maximum number of connections are you able to make (at any one time)

    As far as i can remember, you can only have 1 incoming and 2 outgoing

    Can anyone confirm this?

    And if so, is there anyway to increase this number?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't think there is a "limit" for VPN connections. But then again I've never used more then one VPN/dialup/PPPoE connection at once.

    I didn't think so either, until I've tested it out myself..

    After you've accepted an incoming connection, any other connection is rejected with a "session in use" or similar error message

    As for outgoing, i've never made it past the second session unless i disconnected one of the two already connected sessions.

    A friend of mine who ran 2k Server before, told me that he was able to accept more then 3 (1 in + 2 out) connections.. though i haven't tried/tested this..
