Vista Business Concurrent connections

By chrisblystone ·
I am trying to get a small machine that is going to be a dedicated solution that is hard wired (gigabit). It is going to host quickbooks enterprise for 6 to 8 clients at the same time. It will not be doing anything else. Will Vista buisness handle this or do I need to make the jump to Server 2003?

It will be a HP ProLiant ML110 G4 - Tower - 1-way - 1 x Dual-Core Xeon 3050 / 2.13 GHz - RAM 2 GB - HDD 3 x 160 GB Raid 5- CD - Gigabit Ethernet

will need to connect at any given time, you MAY need to jump to Server 2003 SBS. Vista and XP allow (I think) 10 connections, as long as those connections do not require the user to log onto the local machine. But judging by what you said, I think Vista will work fine with your set up.
That being said, server 2003 or XP may actually perform better then Vista on the same hardware.
lists vista as an option, but I would jump the reccomended ram to 3GB, as vista isn't really happy until at least 2 Gb are installed.
It was nice to see a linux option listed. A CentOS 4.5 install and the rpm package from intuit would also be nice =) A bit more of a pain to set up, but less worry down the road, and more effecient.
