I don't believe there's a limit, although there's probably a theoretical limit you'd never reach.

One thing to remember though is you can only have 10 concurrent connections to one NT workstation
LVL 19

The number of workstations that can be added to a workgroup is unlimited, however the number of users that can connect to a share on a workstation in a workgroup is limited to 10.

             i have 40 systems working under windows NT4 connected through switches and hubs. network neighbourhood shows all the system but only 20 systems can be accessed easly and rest are unreachable but still in the list of networkneighbourhood. if we disconnect one of the system which is reachable than one more system which is not reachable appears as reachable workstation.

Hi - you will have problems with that number due to poor netbios name resolution over IP, it is a commonly encountered limitation.

To fix make one machine a server and install wins or use DNS for name resolution. I would highly recommend setting up a PDC and joining all the machines to the domain - it will save you a lot of trouble in management!
