Hi, I'm serving out a web page from one of my home computers, for the others on the same LAN to access, using IIS.  I wrote the web page using ASP.NET in visual studio 2005. I occasionally get the error "There are too many people accessing the Web site at this time"  when I try to connect to this.  Not sure what causes it, maybe I disconnect and reconnect without knowing, my network resets, etc.

How do I raise this limit?  Why is there a limit?  Really, I want this web page to be served out as many times as it's requested.  

Is there a setting in IIS on my server I can use to prevent this error from happening again?  Thanks.
