Maximum Number of VPN Connections Allowed by Windows XP Pro Server

I would like to know how many VPN connections a Windows XP Pro machine will allow/host. I have successfully configured and tested a VPN connection to my XP Pro machine, which was the first hurdle. I tried to have a different user make a second, simultaneous VPN connection to the XP Pro machine, but that user was denied the connection. Is this a limitation of XP Pro, or is there something that I am missing, with regards to configuring the XP Pro server/host, in order to allow it to accept more than one VPN connection at a time?

Windows XP is purposefully configured to only allow one (and only one) inbound connection at a time.  This is because Microsoft also has a product called Windows Server.  This product will allow many concurrent connections.
