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.
