Just a quick one, I am missing something simple here.

I have an XP Pro machine setup as a VPN server. All works fine no p[roblems. The only problem is it will only accept 1 connection ata atime.

I need to allow 3-4.

Any Help Please....

You are not missing anything. Windows XP only supports a single connection. To allow multiple connections you need to install Server 2003. The other, and likely less expensive option would be to install a VPN router. Clients would then connect to the VPN router, rather than the VPN server behind it. There are many units available but one of the most flexible and affordable is the Linksys RV042. This will allow you to create a site to site connection with 2 routers, connect with the Windows client , or use the Linksys Quick VPN client. Lots of options and very dependable.
