maximum number network connections

I have been successfully running a simple
peer to peer LAN on 4 PC's all running XP
Home. 3 of the PC's use a mapped drive that
points to a folder on the 4th PC (host). I
recently replaced one of those 3 with a PC
running Vista Home Premium. Now I can only
connect any 2 of those 3 PC's to the host.
When I try to connect the 3rd I get the
Windows message about having exceeded the
maximum number of connections the remote PC
can allow. This is strange because XP Home
should allow 5 connections and I am only
trying to run 4. Is there a way to view what
connections the host is running? Could one
of my workstations be connected to the host
more than once? Is there a way to check if
this is the case? Any suggestions would be
much appreciated. Thanks.

Check the share and see what you have for allowable connections.
