Limit on XP Pro to native VPN (PPTP) connections?

Posted on 2006-03-20

Have a Windows XP Pro machine SP2 that doesn't seem to allow 3 concurrent VPN connections via native Windows XP when trying it yesterday.  Running two is fine.  Is this a limitation with XP Pro?  Has anyone else seen this?  This is a special application so was trying to get three running together if possible.  Firewalls aren't the issue since you can run all of these connections separately.
Thank you in advance,

    Are all 3 VPN's on different network addresses?

     I haven't heard of any limitations on the number of VPN connections you can run at once, however it's usually not a good idea as you are opening each of those networks up to the risk of being connected to the other networks.
