Re: rescue me from my self-dug hole!
you have amaximum of three connections on windows XP home, there are no hacks or work arounds.
it won't matter what software you run as this connection limit is in the OS rather than a file sharing part of it...
I suggest, since you are only using XP home to host a file (the program can't be being run on the server as in the terminal server way of runnig things) (I digress) I suggest that you go to the redhat site, download fedora
and set up a samba server.
this samba server will talk effortlessly with windows XP home (OK not effortlessly but once it's set up you needn't touch it again).
and there will be no connection limit...
also future upgrades will be free...
and you can have a 17th lab machine if you want as well since you can remove the XP license from that machine...
(sorry I couldn't be more helpfull but the problem really is with the home part of the xp bit)
I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
