maximum allowed to access a share

By northwood ·
What is the Maximum Allowed simultaneous access to a shared folder?

How do I change the Maximum Allowed simultaneous access to a shared folder. In XP, the default setting for Maximum Allowed simultaneous access is 1 and that is grayed out. How do you change the default setting?

You did not state wether it was home or pro.
XP Pro has 10 connections
XP Home 5 connections

You have not stated what kind of network you have.

All logical drive, logical printer, and transport level connections combined from a single computer are considered to be one session; therefore, these connections only count as one connection.

Microsoft say Unfortunately there is no known workaround or patch. (Sucks Eh).

/howerver if you had the following network.
PC1, PC2, PC3, PC4, PC5 etc
(Folder A on PC 1 is say the folder you want to share)

Then map a drive to this folder on PC 2.
Then use the start/run command and tpye.
\\pc2\foldername and have nine access through this method and nine access through the more straight-forward way.


If you share a folderYou could possibly try
