Hey people!

I've got a PIII pc with W2K PRO and i use it as a file server...

Each user has it'own folder mapped on his pc... There are about 100 users...
I have calls very often every day (each time a different user) saying that when they try to connect on their map drive they get an "Access Denied" error...

Any ideas??

Friend, Because Windows 2k Professional just offer max 10 connections (include drvie mapping) in concurrent. So why it often happens ""Access Denied" error..." when the connections is over 10.

By the way, this is a one of different between W2K server & W2k Professional. If server function is not powerful than professional, who would like to pay more money to purchase the server..... MIcrosoft  how to earn much money from you.



I hope it can help.
