File sharing on Windows XP has a 5 client limitation. Our solution uses both file sharing and SQL Express.
The way I see it, we have 2 options here:
-Reload the machine that they want to use as a server with Windows Server, or;
-Supply them with a dedicated NAS server, and keep their server machine on Windows XP
The second option is the preferred one, for reasons I'm not going to go into. I just need to confirm that the 5 client limitation applies to the file sharing only.
