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.
