If I used IIS 7.0 with Windows Vista Ultimate... does it limit the number of connections to 10 like with Windows XP ?

If so, is there a way around it?

    Accepted Solution

    No. IIS 7.0 on Windows Vista limits the number of simultaneous requests that can be processed. The limit differs depending on the edition of Vista that you run:
    Windows Vista Home Basic and Starter editions: 3
    Windows Vista Home Premium edition: 3
    Windows Vista Ultimate, Business, and Enterprise editions: 10

    The simultaneous request limit for IIS 7.0 on Windows Vista is an improvement over the connection limit for IIS running on earlier versions of the Windows client operating systems. When a connection limit is reached in IIS on earlier versions of Windows client operating systems, such as Windows XP, clients receive a 403.9Access Forbidden error and their request is not processed. On Windows Vista, the request is queued until IIS can process it.

    Good luck,
