    Already 10 users are accessing these printer Now my prolem is that when i am trying connect to printer with rest of the pc it gives me the error:
    "No more connections can be made to this remote computer at this time because there are alredy as many as connections as the computer can accept"

    So what should i do to connect rest of the PC's

    XP is a client operating system. It can only accept 10 inbound connections. You need to either share the printer from a server or setup the printer with an IP address and print that way

          Does it have a network interface card fitted? If so, you need to refer to the manual for your printer.

          However; with 100 users/PCs I think you need to seriously consider buying at least one server... and that means you need to do research into the alternatives; Linux Server or Windows Server are your two most viable and appropriate choices.

            Stonelaughter is correct regarding the server. You would find it beneficial.
            In regards to the printer HP have it listed as an optional extra I believe.

              If you can't afford a server, look for a print server device. They allow the printer to be connected directly to the network (like a printer network card) but also handle printer sharing duties. HP makes them for sure, and other 3rd parties (Linksys) make them as well.

                There is one thing to consider: a server-based solution is better than setting an IP for the printer (with an internal NIC or an external device), because a server can deal with spooling the print jobs (neither a NIC nor a printer server device can do that).
                When we talk 100 users, with an IP-based printer, one has to define a TCP/IP port in every XP client and to configure a local printer to use it. That means that the XP itself does the spooling. In this scenario, if one user sends to the printer a rather large job, all the other clients that need to print will have problems to do it... Depending on the time that passes, the printing job may fail and the printer may be flagged as not available.
                In the server-based scenario, however, the server itself does the spooling of the printing jobs. From the client's point of view, it's a "fire-and-forget" task. Even if there is a large job to be processed, the server will see to it that other waiting jobs will be printed as well.
                In my organization, I use IP-based printing only on there are a small number of users (3, max. 4) and their printing needs are not that high. Otherwise, I define that printer on the printers' server.
