Is there a limitation or number of allowed domain users connected to the print server.

Print server is on Windows Server 2k3.

We presently have a printer server installed in Windows XP and other users are just connecting to the specific workstation where the print server is reside. the problem is that Windows XP has a 10 connection limit only, so the User 11 cannot connect to the printer.

So if i make a printer server reside in server 2k3, is there also a user limitation when printing at the same time?

No, the clients limit for Shared Folders and Printers on any Windows Server is unlimited by default.

But it is also "unlimited" if you use a Print Server, that is a much easier and cheaper long and short term solution than buying and setting up a Windows 2003 Server just because of a printer.

Also, there are some tricks online you can try to increase the number of connections on your Windows XP machine to up to 50 users.
