anyone know a way around only 10 concurent connections


Blame me for the RAZR's
anyone know a way around only 10 concurent connections allowed on Windows 2000 prof... In 2000 server you can have unlimited.

*Whoops, edited wrong post, lol*


I'm sorry Hal...

No, not a single way. Its part of the licence agreement

Microsoft has placed limitations on the number of simultaneous IP sessions for their non-server editions of the Windows OS. Both Windows 2000 and XP Professional is limited to 10 concurrent IP sessions.
*waits to be corrected*

ug....i was afraid of that.. some dip**** decided to set up a monitored network scanning on a machine thats running 2000 prof.. i really dont want to have to migrate the data and then change all the xerox's. sigh.

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."

Thanks all this is something the company will just have to live with because a admin didnt think ahead. Apreciate everyone that replied.

If you are thinking of the limitation this passes: 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.)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
