I know that Windows XP limits IIS to 10 connections. I have a web service that copies files from the server to 20 terminals. 10 terminals work fine, but terminal number 11 gets no connection.

If I were to copy the files from the server to the terminals with FTP (still on the IIS), would this work?

This is a license limitation and Windows XP has a 10 inbound connection limit. If you go above this, you are technically breaking the license.

As far as I remember, FTP is connection limited and will not allow going about 10 connections.

thanks for the help !, is there any way to copy file from the server (windows-XP) to 20 or more terminals without use IIS ? – Gold Aug 12 '11 at 10:39
Well, technically, you will be breaking the Windows License, but, you can use Filezilla FTP Server - or Apache Web Server - – William Hilsum Aug 12 '11 at 10:51
