No, this value cannot be changed.  And even if it could, you would be violating your Microsoft W2K EULA (End User License Agreement) by doing so.

W2K is technically limited to 10 client connections and your user license also limits you to 10 client connections.

If you need more clients, get W2K Server.

In that case I'm reporting you to the EE moderators.  What you ask to do violates the Microsoft license for your software.  EE policies prohibit asking for or providing such help here.  To quote:

As jhance pointed out, you are trying to voilate a license agreement. I have to remind you on your Membership Agreement you accepted when you signed up with EE. Please accept his comment as an answer!

So I'll just restate the only answer to this possible here:

No, this value cannot be changed.  And even if it could, you would be violating your Microsoft W2K EULA
(End User License Agreement) by doing so.

W2K is technically limited to 10 client connections and your user license also limits you to 10 client
connections.

If you need more clients, get W2K Server.

I don't think that you would find this in the registry.  It's probably buried in the core OS, and you would need the source code for that.  Maybe call Microsoft, I'm sure the would be willing to help for a price - say the cost of buying a server license and a little berating.

using a 3rd party app like a ftpd will get around the 10 user limit on win2k pro. As for changing it , well thats something MS has hidden to ensure people buy the server lics , apparently when they released the 10 user limit on win2k there was uproar but they refused to budge over it & its also a ULA breech
