I have been to a small company today that use 15 windows xp pro computers on a network and the server is just a pc with beefed up memory and hdd. All they do at this company is create word documents and the occasional spreadsheet, nothing heavy. The xp pro machine acting as a server has a backup tape drive attached. I installed a couple of new pcs onto the network today but they say the server is at its limit? Can only so many people connect to xp pro? I thought if is was simple sharing there wouldnt be a limit? What if I disconnect mappings and they simply connect through network places, would this overcome it?
If not, can you buy a kit to add to pro to allow more users?
