No. You are limited to 10 IP connections max in the desktop OSes made by Microsoft.

You will need Windows Server to overcome that issue.

Thanks for the reply. How about tweak on this one? Would it be possible for us to do it in registry? Thanks again. Hope to hear from you soon. God bless.

alternative idea

How about setting up an FTP server? Not quite the same thing, but depending on what you want to do it might accomplish the same goal. I would recommend Filezilla for testing, it won't modify your system as much as Microsoft's server will.

I really would like to share files, which is common. Like music files, they can play it in simultaneous access. Thanks for the reply. I really appreciate it. God bless.

How about Linux?

I am having the same problem. We have an IT learning suite of 12 computers and require learners to access resources on a network folder. Sadly our budget doesn't stretch to Windows Server. Maybe it is possible to install linux on the machine that shares out the Network Folder. Is it possible for more than 10 Windows XP workstations to access a Network Folder on a Linux based system(preferably open source?

How many machines do you have hosting the file(s)?
