    Windows XP and File-Sharing

    I've noticed that on Windows XP Proffesional it is only letting a maximum of 10 people access to share a drive, is there anyway to increase that number? Or any programs or software that will bypass that?

    The limitation is part of EULA, that you accept when bought the software.

    Our server went down so we figured why keep the tech stuff on that server, so were trying to make our XP-Pro machine a server that allows for a group of people to share, but I've gotta bypass the default limit of 10 in order to do that.

    Would it be cheaper to set up this box with something besides windows since it's just going to be used just to store files people can get to?
