Max concurrent share connections for Win 2003 Server - Web Edition?

Windows Server 2003 – Web Server Edition

Have 11 workstations (Windows XP Pro x 14) all running in a workgroup, all accessing the one share on Server 2003  - Web Edition.

Problem :

Can only get 10 to connect at any one time to share.  As you try to browse the share error – No more connections can be made…reached limit. (something like that)

Share is set to maximum concurrent shares and have also tried to set the number manually to 60. Microsoft say that this should not be an issue and should be able to have unlimited access to share.

    Yes.  4 billion.  But it's technically restricted to however many CALs you have.  So if you only have 15 CALs, then the limit is 15.
