Vista ultimate - max client connections
What are the maximum number of client connections allowed by Ultimate? I foolishly set up a secondary print server on Vista Business, to take some of the load off the primary server. After spending ages trying to figure out why some machines were mapping the printers whilst others weren't, I realised that Business will only allow ten connections.
Everything's set up and it works fine until more than ten machines try mapping printers.

Still 10 as far as I know - same for all desktop Windows OSs. Time to invest in a cheapy printserver - although setting up your machines to print via a TCP/IP port rather than SMB might fix it?
Edit - for confirmation, http://download.microsoft.com/docume...9cf5105718.pdf - check P12 of the EULA.

You can install the Print Services for Unix and use LPR ports to get round that problem.
