Internet onnection sharing
Posted on 2004-04-15
we are planning to share an internet connection (bandwidth around 1 mb) among 60 - 70 PCs.
In the past i have used proxy software to share a connection with 4-5 PCs so can the same be done with 70 PCs
Sometime back we had this problem at my office; when more than 10 users tried to access files form an XP system (simultaneously), the system refused to accept anymore connections.
we later discovered that the OS doesn't support more than 10 concurrent connections. will the same happen here?
So whats the best way to go about this and which OS would be more suitable
Also could you suggest some nice proxy software with the ability to restrict bandwidth based on mac id or ip
