Maximum Connections to a shared folder

By neil_oettel ·
I have a W2k Profesional machine running a 57 mb Access Database. I need this machine to run for a short time(less than a month), and then it will be imported into an SQL format. But when ever I have at least 10 users on this share with the login of "guest", I am then unable to have any more users login. It seems that W2k Professional can only support 10 concurrent users per share.
Any help would be appreciated.

10 Users is about the max an Access database will support. Winnt 5 (workstation, I assume) would still allow 24 concurrent users per share.

Moving to Winnt 5 SERVER will allow 64 users per share and migrating to SQL should eliminate ODBC jams.

it's an old problem

In older versions of Windows where is the same limitation, thus WinNT 4.0 Workstation supports of maximum 10 connections per server too. Try to use a server oriented W2K edition, such as Server or Enterprise.
