No more connections can be made to this remote computer

O.S - Windows 2000 Pro
I have a local network of 8 computers which i manage remotely, i am trying to connect to workstation 8 via VNC, when i do this it tells me the host can not be found.
If i try to connect to workstation 8 via explorer it gives me the error message "No more connections can be made to this remote computer"
Now I know windows 2000 has a limit of 10 users but I only have 8 in my network.
WS8 can see WS1 but WS1 can not see WS8.
Whats even stranger is if I do a NET VIEW from a cmd prompt on WS1 it only displays WS1 WS6 and WS8
I can VNC to all other terminals from WS1 except ws8 and can view files from all other terminals expect ws8.
What is blocking me from connecting to ws8 and why is net view only displaying 3 of the 8 computers on the network, including the 1 computer i can not connect to or ping?
This question is in relation to a store scenario so its rather urgent as ws1 is acting as the file server
