We set up a simple peer-to-peer network between six computers (some with Win2k Pro and others with Win XP--both Home and Pro).

One machine, "Steve" (Win XP Home), hosts a shared "office" folder which the other machines are mapped to as an "O:" drive.

Sometimes I am unable to access that shared folder and receive the following error:

An error occured while reconnecting O: to \\Steve\OFFICE

Microsoft Windows Network: No more connections can be made to this
computer at this time because there are already as many connections as the
computer can accept.

This connection has not been restored.

Is it possible that Win XP Home has a limitation of 5 connections at a time?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
