  • 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 server.?

    Like say the server is licensed for 25 concurrent connections.
    Does that mean 25 workstations can jam 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.

    Re: Concurrent connection disambiguation

    What is really driving your inquiry?

    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.
    Cheers,

      Beemis, double posting, even when there are slight differences between the posts, is definitely discouraged here. I suggest some serious grovelling before the boss notices!

        I'm not happy about the double post as I don't like to waste my time while someone else is replying to the other thread.
