Hello Everybody,
I've got a little problem with a small network here...

I've got a Windows Server 2003 (Web Edition) running a web-page, NOT domain Controller
then comes a Firewall wich secures the web-server from internal network and internet.
After that, in the internal network, there is a fileserver (domain controller) with enough licenses (10) installed...
But I always get a 'No more connections... Maximum reached' error one some Clients (never more than 10) if i want to connect to the webserver (fileshares) or re-mount fileshares...
The strange thing, sometimes i can use it through the ip address (e.g. \\external.ip\share) but not through the server-name (e.g. \\websrv01\share), and sometimes i can't use it at all...
I've rechecked the licenses-amount - they should be fine (currently only 5-7 licenses needed frequently)
- tried to deactivate license logging on webserver and fileserver -> didn't work

I have also already called the firewall ISP (externally hosted) if there were any blocked packets - but there were none, so i can't imagine a blocked service...

Any ideas?
