  • Concurrent connection disambiguation

    This has been bugging me and I can't seem to get a clear answer anywhere:

    Can one XP machine make more than one file/printer share connection to a nother XP machine?

    XP pro allows 10 concurrent connections.
    Does that mean 10 other workstations can jam on it with impunity or will there be certain workstations with multiple mapped drives open or print jobs going that will hog more connections to the peril of other needy workstations?

    Essentially what constitutes a "connection"?

    I thank the seasoned verterans in advance.

      Looks like beemis is double posting. I asked some follow on questions in his other thread. I'll repeat them here:

      Are you asking from a licensing perspective or a physical one?

      Back in the MS-Net world (pre-OS/2 LAN Manager just to show my age), there were distinct physical limits on the total number of connections vs. the connected clients so this was an important issue.

      I don't believe the EULA's care about number of connections per client. Of course I could be wrong as I'm not involved in the licensing end of the enterprise.
