    to many connections to remote computer

    This has just started happening yesterday.
    We run Simms on teh office PC and share it with the other admin staff.
    These Pc's are not networked. we just share a folder from the "main Sims pc"

    Normally the computers fire up and the networked drives auto connect.

    "Now we are getting No more connections can be made to this remote computer as there are as many connections as this computer can accept."
    I have tried removing the drive and then re adding it but get a This mapped network drive could not be added No more connections can be made to this remote computer as there are as many connections as this computer can accept.

    They are all windows 7 Pro. I have gone to the folder in question and sharing properties and connections is set to 20 this is the maximum i can set it to.
    There is only 4 other computers that are connecting to the share.

    Any ideas

    The Pro/Workstation versions have a limit of 10 connections, so some how you are hitting that. At least it was in the NT4/Windows 2000 days.

    on the main pc where all the files are shared, take a look at admin tools > computer management > shared files > open sessions and see if you have more than 10 connections
