We have a Microsoft network with the server running 2000 Professional and the other machines a combination of 98, XP Home and XP Pro. We have a printer connected to one of the XP Home machines and this printer is used by about 6 - 8 users. At some time during each day, any new person who tries to print to the machine gets an error and no further connections to the machine, whether to print or view files is possible. People who have printed during the day remain capable of doing so. A restart of the machine once again allows access to all.
Is there something that can be done to stop this problem. Are there a maximum number of connections to an XP Home machine? Can this be changed and how?
