Is Oracle max connections limited by Window 2000 pro max connection of 10 users

I am running Oracle 8i Enterprise Edition on a Windows 2000 pro OS, and on this same machine I am running a server application. The server application is known as IETM --a java based program that runs through the IE browser.
In addition, I have two shared folders that must work in conjuction with oralce.   To interact with Oracle, I use the server version of IETM to load and update data, set up users and permission.  My client version of IETM runs on client machine that also have Windows 2000 pro.  The IETM clients connect to Oracle that is running a host machine that has the Oracle running on it and to the share folders on this same host. Both connection have to occur at the same time, for the clients to work.

My question is --will the max connection 10 users rule will limit my Oracle connections as well;
And if so,
Is there anyway around the max connection rule without upgrading to a server OS?

Each computer may be having more than one conection. netbios chatter for example, or an opened named pipe from before, combined with another file transfer, so they can equal more than 10. the connections are counted for any file or print services, plus any use authentication. FTP/HTTP are not bound to this 10 connection limit, but they are bound to a totally other 10 conection limit based specifically on the protocols used. (http and ftp).

NO there is no workaround.
*get the server version of windows.
