    I've been having trouble with my server declining connections over my small office network. I've looked up help and found things that apply to XP professional (I am running XP home on the server). Is there any way to do away with the 5 connection maximum as stated in the license agreement, or am I going to have to go with something else like a Linux-based server? I had a computer running 2000 Professional earlier, but it had reached the end of it's useful life. I never had this problem in 2000 Professional.

    either run something like Apache instead of IIS, or move to Windows 2003, or go to linux.
