Solid Peer and Pop Ups

Q: Solid Peer and Pop Ups

Keep getting unwanted pop ups or similar from Solid Peer, Free6, and Old Games. Some are pornographic. Any ideas of how to stop this please?

Preferred Solution: Solid Peer and Pop Ups

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solid Peer and Pop Ups


What operating system are you using? XP has a "pop-up blocker", or you can download them from the net. Here's a search I did through Google.


Good luck,

I run Pop Up Stopper and I also have MSN pop up stopper. It stops all pop ups except the one called "Solid Peer". It is a different advertisement every time but in the "blue bar" at the top of the pop up it says "Solid Peer".

It is not really specific to any certain web page. I am closing between 15-20 every hour.

Anyone know how to stop it?

Have 6 comps running win2k on a peer-to-peer network. On one I have set up a calender in microsoft outlook for all six users. What I want to do is share this file to the other 5 computers so that they all have a record of each others calenders and there own which are up to date and be able to enter in appointments etc.
I've put a short cut to Microsoft Outlook on the main computer on all of the other computers but when I click on it...it loads Microsoft outlook from scratch on the current computer. I cant seem to find the information to import to each of the computers. I'm not really sure how to do it at all.

Years ago, my friend and I would use a program called QModem (DOS terminal emulation software?) to dial each others' modems and chat in real-time. I mean the keystrokes would appear on the other end as they were typed. These days, instant messaging is instant as soon as you push the enter key. I would like to know how to do this "old school" style. Well, if we figured out how to do this 10+ years ago with 14,400 baud modems, surely there is a way to do it via the Internet now. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

And while I'm at it... is there freeware that will allow two people on the Internet to do application sharing? Thanks again.

A:how do I set up a peer-to-peer real-time text-based chat session

Most of that instant message type software is already very capable of displaying real time keystrokes because it will often indicate the person on the other end is typing a response before it is actually sent. I think there is some sensitivity to blatant real-time keystroke monitoring and allowance for modification of typos and incorrect or misleading sentence structure these days that is supposedly a more refined approach to "instant" communication. I tend to agree.

For the second part there are specific apps designed for sharing and collaboration such as the office-type suite of programs included in Google Docs and there's always the quasi "sharing" effect one gets with online assistance or remote access with collaborative functions enabled. Also, online apps such as Adobe Photoshop Express offer application sharing in the strict sense but you probably meant it to be real or near real-time collaborative as well?

Ok guys here is the deal.......
I have a Peer-Peer network with 15 computers in one location and than it is connected through a router to another another peer-peer network behind another router. I have setup an IP route to between the routers and an IP route to the inside of both routers. The computers are able to ping each other, map drives and share anything that is needed. I have Operating systems on the computers ranging from Win95/98/ME/XP. What I need to do is be able to set it up to where all of the computers in both networks on seperate Subnets can see all of the other computers in the Network Neighborhood. I have looked at using LMHOSTS for this but do not know what I am missing in setting that up correctly and do not know if that would work for all of the machines with differant OS on them. If anyne can tell me what I need to configure to set this up that would be GREAT!

Ok the idea for a NT Server would be great except that this is for a County Government facility and they can not buy beans until after July. I have attempted to use LMHOSTS on one of the machines and had the intial idea of creating 2 LMHOSTS files one for each network and installing it on each machine with the same added IP's from the other network.

A:2 peer-peer Networks needing to see all Computers in Network Neighborhood

Host files would be a nightmare to maintain between the number of computers you are talking about. You would need some way of keeping a copy on each PC so they were all identical. I am still not sure this would take care of your network neighborhood issue. In the LMHOST file there is an example of the way the entries should be entered. Why not get an NT box and set up WINS on it, then you would have some sort of central administration of user accounts and access to resources. You are at the limit for peer-to-peer networking anyway. You don't need a fancy $5000 dollar server to run NT4...any workstation with good disk size and speed and a good amount of memory will do.

Does downloading Windows updates from Microsoft's servers and waiting too long really annoy you? It might not be with the arrival of Windows 10. Microsoft seems to make a major change in Windows 10 to the way it delivers updates for the software.
The leaked version of Windows 10 build 10036 (the current version is build 9926) allows you to grab OS updates from Microsoft as well as other computers, whether they're on your local network or on the Internet.
Yeah, it's a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) technology Microsoft is going to use in order to deliver both app and operating system updates.
Peer-to-Peer, or P2P Technology is usually associated with file sharing services like BitTorrent to download illicit copies of movies and albums, and of course, those endless Linux ISOs you've been downloading.
However, Redmond is embracing the technology as an efficient means to deliver software updates to its users around the globe.

how do you prevent users on peer to peer network from intalling software on their local machines in win9x environment and win 2k/winxp environment?


A:Peer to Peer prevent local users from installing software

In a 9x/ME environment, it's pretty difficult, since there is no real security. For 2K/XP, you can restrict them by running them as ordinary users, not Administrators. There are ways around that too, but at least it'll slow them down.

I have a peer-to-peer network of 6 machines. Two run Windows XP Pro, two Windows 7 Pro. Recently i added another two running Windows 7 pro. One machine (an i7 system) that acts as a server, shares a folder that contains a program that runs under
Dos standards. All the rest access this shared folder (the net name is G:) and run the executable file. What happened recently is that one of the two new added systems was not used for sometime (about 3 hours) and when the user tried run the program, it kicked
out all the rest of the computers (working or idling) exempt the one acting as the server. Even after rebooting the server acting machine and the rest of the workstations computers the connection to the net shared folder could not be established again for
some time. Does anyone had maybe a similar experience. Could this be a problem related to the autodisconnect parameter and it what way ?     Thank You.

I have 2 desktops and a laptop connected to a router. All with fixed IP addresses and all with the same subnet mask and default gateway. All can connect to the internet.

I have had a peer to peer network running for over a year without problems. Suddenly the laptop has stopped being visible on the Mshome network.

I have checked and the Computer browser and Server services are running. The firewall is OK with exceptions allowed and the file and print sharing is one of those enabled exceptions.

I have checked Ipconfig and the settings are the same on all three machines other than the fixed IP addresses.

Does anyone have any ideas please?



A:Solved: XP Peer to Peer networking stopped working

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
PING <computer name>

<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

Check your Services are Started on all PCs:

Computer Browser
DHCP Client
DNS Client
Network Connections
Network Location Awareness
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
TCP/IP Netbios helper

Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic.

My work has a small wireless network. 5 computers in all. Lets call them computers A through E.

Here is a little more info on the computers:
A: Windows 2000, wireless
B: Windows XP Pro SP2, wired into Linksys Wireless-G 2.4GHz router
C: Windows XP Pro SP2, wireless
D: Windows Vista Ultimate SP1, wireless, used as "file server"
E: Windows Vista Ultimate SP1, wireless

They are all part of a workgroup that allow file sharing over a peer to peer network. The main problem happens intermittently when only a few files are being opened by 2, maybe 3 people from the "server", or computer D. With 2 or 3 people accessing different files over the network, it will sometimes not let one person save their file, while another person can't access any files from computer D anymore. It will tell them they don't have access to computer D, and to contact the network admin.

I was just wondering if this is a resource problem with D. It has 2 Gb ram, 250Gb hdd raid 1 array, only 5 months old.

Thanks for any help, let me know if other information is needed.

A:Peer to Peer small network problems Vista/XP

I admit to not having experience with such a network, but it seems to me that having a "file server" connected via wireless is risky. If the files are of moderate or large size there could be a lot of contention for the Wi-Fi if 3 computers are accessing more or less simultaneously. Remember that wireless is half-duplex and devices have to take turns talking. Could you connect D by ethernet for a day and see if you still get the same problems?

Total of 4 machines. 3 running XP, 1 is w2kPro.

All can see each other and all PC's can share properly but...when any XP box tries to access the W2k Pro machine a window pops up asking "connect to server" and asks for an ID and Password.

I never set up a password of anykind on the W2k machine.

I entered admin as the id and once I tabbed to the password line the ID field then changed to \\server\admin (don't know if that helps, 'server' is just what I chose to call it).

Hi all. Well this problem is sort of really complicated and complex, and I'm not even sure if this is the right section to be posting it, so I do apologize. I have tried researching this problem but was not able to come to a solution.

So I play this online fighting game that utilizes P2P, where basically players "host" these rooms where 1-7 other players can join (maximum of 8 including yourself), and you play and fight with each other in like a Street Fighter kind of way. I never installed my Windows Updates until I recently heard about the free Windows 10 reserve, so I went ahead and installed a bunch of "Important Updates" and "Optional Updates."

I was able to reserve Windows 10, but ever since the installation, I would have bad connection "lag" to these other players if the room has 4 or more players. This was never the case before. I have tried resetting my router and even reformatted my computer and the problem still persists. I have a strong suspicion that one of these Windows Updates may have caused this. Is there even a possible way to pinpoint this exact problem and uninstall/ turn of the update?

Thank you.

Hey Guys, 

I am trying to setup a single sign on type configuration for some engineer's new test stand. The way the stand has been configured for their use is that there is a "controller" PC that is domain connected and there are two other PC's that are connected
via a work group that are not domain attached. I am trying to setup a way for the user to log onto the domain connected "Controller" PC and then auto login to the other 2 PCs. Currently the users have to login into all 3 PCs and it is becoming quite
cumbersome. I know I can use task scheduler to lock or log off these PC's quite easily but the log on piece has got me stumped. I am trying to avoid having to connect the non-domain PCs to the domain as that would complicate the use of the stand. I was thinking
of trying to configure a true SSO server but I think the controller would have to be the server in order for that to work. I was also considering LDAP but I think that the PC's would have to be domain attached. Any ideas of a way to script this function?
I am running Windows 7 on all 3 PC's and 2008 server for the domain

Check the status of any installed firewall, perhaps temporarily switching them off to see if this fixes the problem. If this is the cause you can manually add the IP as a trusted device to each firewall so they are not blocked.

A small business has a DSL connection to the Internet with 4 public IP addresses. These 4 addresses are assigned by their ISP via DHCP. The small business has 4 PCs that are networked via a Linksys switch and are assigned the 4 public IP addresses. I can ping these addresses along with other IP addresses in the same subnet from my network (which is not part of their network).

The business wants to set up Windows peer-to-peer networking between their 4 systems. My question is: What is their exposure if they do this? Since their ISP is assigning addresses to other customers in the same subnet, I'm assuming that the other customers in the same subnet could potentially see the shared Windows resources on their network.

Do I strongly recommend that they get a router and use NAT? Or is there some other solution? Or am I missing something?

Hello all

I've been ghosting using peer to peer via my linksys router for some time now. However, today, I tried ghosting my laptop to the hard drive of my computer (just your basic image file), and my computer just shuts down. Here is how far I get:

My computer is set as the slave
My laptop is set to master
They both connect through the linksys router and recieve ip address.
I start ghost on the laptop to create an disk to image file.
The process starts, then all of a sudden at random times (no more then 10 seconds into it), my slave computer just shuts down completely.

The only thing that is different on my computer is I ran out of space, so I deleted old backup programs (just the .exe's) that were not installed anymore. And did a defrag which I do every 2 weeks.

Windows run's normally and does not shut down. If I leave the slave running in ghost (while it's telling me to enter the ip address into the master computer), everything is fine and it doesn't shut down. It's only while the master is connected and starts writing the image file. The slave computer has two hard drives, and I've tried using both, and disconnecting one at a time and just using the one drive. Still with no luck.

any help is always appreciated. Thanks

I network an XP box and a 98 box via Ethernet. The two also share a DSL connection via a Zoom modem with a built-in router (5651_X4_2_2). The router connects to a Linksys switch (EtherFast 10/100 5-Port Workgroup Switch EZXS55W). The switch has SIX ports: five used (Zoom router patch, XP patch, 98 crossover, 98 patch, Brother patch) and one unused labeled "uplink" (not sure what uplink is - not important, is it?).

I've attempted multiple times using Brother's software to configure a Peer-to-Peer printer via the XP box but the printer is not recognized on my network. USB config as Network Printer was a breeze but want Peer-to-Peer so I don't have to turn on XP box to print 98 box docs.

I have a home network setup using Microsoft network neighborhood for 4 PCs - all running on windows 98SE.

I recently added a windows 2000 PC into the mix - all machines are setup with file/ printer sharing enabled.

When trying to connect, I receive the message:

Enter network password

You must supply a password to make this connection

A:Windows 2000 in peer to peer home network

To get this to work with w2k/xp in the mix, all the users on all the machines will have to be set up to use passwords on their user accounts. (you can then set up TweakUI on each to automatically sign on with the password)

For the 98 machines to access the w2k machine, you'll have to create additional users on the w2k that are identical to the users/passwords on all the other machines. Those passwords are the ones w2k is looking for at the prompt you're getting.

A:Share Resource problems on Peer-to-Peer Network

Although you likely have a lot of this working, the basics for troubleshooting are:

1. Make sure you have the same IP scheme (e.g. 192.168.0.x).

2. Make sure you have the same Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS IP addresses.

3. Make sure you can ping the other computer's IP address. If this fails, just for testing, make sure you turn off XP's as well as any other firewall.

4. Make sure you can ping the other computers by name.

5. Make sure you have the same workgroup name (watch for trailing spaces)

6. For troubleshooting purposes, turn off XP's and completely uninstall any other firewall software. You can always add more complexity after you get it working.

7. With XP, make sure you have the same username and password as the person logging onto the other computers. The default setting for XP Pro is to require a password for network access.

The easiest way I know of is to use a program like PCAnywhere. That's what I have used for remote access over the Internet and I know of some people that used it internally over the LAN.

You may want to check out the Microsoft Knowledge Base for information regarding Windows 98's capabilities in that area.

Good Luck,

I am the accountant at a small manufacturing company. We have a peer to peer network with 15 stations (I know, I'm trying to get them to spring for a server). One of our printers has suddenly stopped being recognized by either the Windows network or our AS 400 system. I am as close as we have to a tech support department and my knowledge is based on personal experience, so it's pretty spotty. Right now, I'd like to see the ip addresses of all the printers and computers connected to our network, but I don't know where to go. Help, please!

I have a 4 PC Peer to Peer network (under Win98 SE). The network works great!

I have a DSL Modem using a linksys Ether fast Cable Router as the DHCP (TCP/IP)[I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOX].

I have one computer [Sony Vaio F450 notebook] that exhibits some rather Bizarre behavior on this "net".


Takes up to 40 seconds to recognize and send command to other machines after logging in under network neighborhood. I.E. I see the other computer and, then, say I click on the A: drive icon. It will be 40 seconds until the drive on the other machine is accessed! Ok, so check this! If I access the notebook from the other machines it works "Instantly" I can copy files at full Fast ethernet speed etc. Access to the web is at full DSL speed.

I can,obviously, do the "work around" from the other computer(s) but it seems ridiculous that this box works sooooooo slowly only in "one direction".

Other observations, I have tried two different types of NIC's from two different vendors in the box with the same result. Registry looks "Clean" via regscan utils etc. Settings on all machines have been checked and re-checked.

It seems that I have a bad software module somewhere, but where? I did a software check via the utility suggested at the Microsoft Site but it says I have no corrupt modules (do I really believe that?)8).

Oh yes the router is an autosense (10/100 MBS) router but I don't have a problem "talking" fro... Read more

my setup is a wireless USB adapter connected to a wireless access point. I have another laptop which i want to be able to share that internet connection. I managed to make a peer to peer connection between my two laptops, but the 2nd laptop isn't online in that it won't go to any websites or anything. I think it must be possible for this to work, because my host laptop has two wireless adapters, the USB which is configured to connect to the wireless access point, and its internet adapter which i've set up as a peer network... what am i doing wrong? thanks.

A:peer to peer connection but what about sharing internet

Since you did not mention it I'm guessing that you have not yet enabled Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). You can look up instructions, but I think you can go into Network Connections - right click on the connection with internet access - Advanced tab - enable ICS.

OTOH, I think this does not always work with USB.

There is a reason you don't just connect the second PC to the access point?

I sometimes tether to my smartphone (HD2, running Windows Mobile 6.5) with an app called WMWiFiRouter, which creates a wi-fi hotspot using the 3g connection of the phone.

Despite "router" being in the app's name, it sets the connection up as a peer-to-peer (adhoc) network.

This works with computers I have used it with running Windows XP and Windows 7. It also works with an Ipod Touch and Ipad I have.

However, so far I cannot get it to work on my new Windows 8 laptop. It connects to the adhoc network, but reports it as having "No Internet Access" (although other computers and devices can connect to the Internet through it), and indeed, one cannot connect to any web site, nor read e-mail, etc., with the Win8 computer when connected to my tethered wi-fi network.

I tried turning off the Windows Firewall. Didn't help. Same problem.

Does anyone reading have an idea, how I can get the Windows 8 laptop (Lenovo X230) to connect to the Internet through the adhoc network of my smartphone, as my Windows XP and 7 computers can, and other devices?

Thank you in advance for your help.

A:Cannot connect to Internet through peer-to-peer connection

Problem still unresolved. I hope that someone can help.

In case the following info would be helpful, the Windows 8 laptop is a Lenovo Thinkpad X230.

The wireless adapter is Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205.

Thanks in advance for your help with this problem.

I just setup a peer to peer workgroup and I'm running into an sharing issue.

I have 2 computers , one is a win98 and the second is w2k pro.
workgroup is workgroup.
On the win 2k pro I can see the win98 computer icon (my networkplaces under workgroup) and access the contents to the share.
On the Win98 I can see the 2000 Pro computer Icon but I cannot access any share (I cannot get pass the computer icon) . It asks for a passord... It asks for
\\computernaneme\IPC$ password.

The w2k pro shares has no password requirement and security tab is for everyone group.

w2k client has Client for microsoft networks, file and print sharing for Microsoft networks and netBeui
The win98 has Client for microsoft networks,file and print sharing for Microsoft networks check, netBeui.

Both systems are on a subnet.
Both get out to the internet and both see each other but it comes up with that
\\computername\IPC$ (computername say joe) \\joe\IPC$ on the win98 machine when itries to acces the 2kpro computer icon in network neighborhood.

ok, i know there're lots of threads on this one but none of relevant helped me.

first of all ill describe my network structure.
3 pc's (2 desktops and a laptop) are connected into a lan through a hub. the 'main' pc has broadband internet and a printer that it shares and other computers can use both the internet and the printer. so that's fine.

now, i also have a wireless 802.11g card for laptop and a wireless 802.11g pci card for my 'main' pc. i plugged both in and wanted to make a peer to peer connection between laptop and the 'main' (with the cat5 cable disconnected from laptop while it uses wireless). i have also created a bridge between wireless and lan so that i could share internet access to my laptop that connets wirelessly. now the problem is that i can't create this wireless peer to peer between the 'main' and the laptop for whatever reason. i have followed the steps as described on numerous websites but it didnt help me. i believe i have done something wrong but i can't be sure what.

so here are the current settings i have
-the 'main' and laptop both have DHCP enabled because i use ICS via ethernet (when it's connected)
-the wirless connections are set to have same SSID, 128bit encryption with key, work on same channel and have ad hoc mode activated.
-it says 'wireless connected' but i am not able to ping one computer from the other and vice versa
- i noticed that the IP... Read more

I have various issues communicating among three computers (win7, XP, win98) in a workgroup on my peer to peer home network. The network has functioned well in the past but apparently I have changed something.

One symptom -- right now I am looking at the workgroup with Windows Explorer on the XP computer. With Windows Explorer I select the workgroup icon and click its (+) in the left pane. All three computers display below the workgroup. But only two of the three computers display in the right pane.

Explorer on the XP.
Network Places

________Dell Studio 15 (Studio15) OS=WIN7-Pro, laptop, WIFI to route
________Northgate (tower) OS=WIN98, Ethernet to router

________Homebuilt PC (Homebuilt)
________Dell Studio 15 (Studio15)

Windows Explorer on the WIN7
(It sees only itself (Studio15) in the left and right panes of Explorer)

Windows Explorer on the WIN98
(It sees only itself (tower) in the left and right panes of Explorer)

What could be my problem that the three computers cannot see each other?

A:Can't display all computers within my peer to peer workgroup.

After about a half hour after posting the previous post I checked the screens of the XP and the Win7. Both Windows Explorers have changed. On the Win7, the XP icon now displays in both windows and its folders and files are accessible.

On the XP, the Win7 displays as before and its folders and files are accessible. But the Win98 no longer displays in the left pane as before.

On the Win98, it still displays only itself.

Note: Earlier, on XP the Win98 icon displayed in the left pane only. But by high-lignting the Win98 icon in the left pane I could display in the right pane the Win98's folders and files (those that were shared) -- as they should.

I understand Peer to Peer or Ad Hoc but I do not know the difference between setting up a wireless network using Access Point versus Peer to Peer.

Using 3 computers in a household on a wireless network, which would be a more favorite preference?

Thank you in advance for your sincere help.


A:Access Point versus Peer to Peer

Ad-hoc wireless means just two or more computers. Infrastructure wireless means having a device (access point) that gives structure to the network--in particular it will usually include a Dhcp server.

Peer to peer means all the computers are "equal"--for example, there is no central server with the other computers being clients. Almost all home networks are peer to peer, although many people think of one of the computers as being "main" or the "file server."

Ad-hoc wireless is nice because no additional equipment is needed. But, my opinion, using a wireless router is preferable because the networks are easier to set up and maintain, better security (WPA2 and WPA-PSK) is available, ethernet connected devices can be easily added, and internet access (if desired) is much easier and better.

The printer is connected to a Win2000 PC which has the latest drivers installed. This PC is in a peer-to-peer network with a laptop running Win98 1st. ED. which also has the latest drivers. The printer is installed as a shared printer.

The Win98 laptop can 'see' the shared printer but print requests from that machine don't get printed. For example in trying to print a .txt file from the laptop the following sequence occurs:

1) The laptop driver executes to prepare the file for printing.
2) The spooler executes and spools the print file.
3) The print file is sent over the network to the Win2000 machine.
4) The print file appears to be spooled on the Win2000 machine (i.e. it appears in the printer queue).
5) The print file is not printed, but it is removed from the printer queue.

Other comments:

1) The same file (when decalared shared) acessed over the network from the Win2000 PC prints correctly. By this I mean that if the file is 'pulled' over the network it prints, but if it is 'pushed' from another PC as detailed above, it doesn't.
2) Files local to the Win2000 PC print correctly.

The printer hardware is OK. The drivers are correctly installed. The printer appears to be a shared printer. Is the problem in Win2000, Win 98, printer drivers or what?

The printer is a Lexmark 5700. I contacted Lexmark and they said that this printer was not designed to be a network printer. This puzzles me. How does the printer know it is part of a n... Read more

A:Printing problem in peer-to peer network

Some printers use a locally stored cache file for printing. When the printing program (driver) runs, it looks in this local cache for the file. If it isn't there, it doesn't print.

These kinds of printers can't be networked, becuase the remote machine has no way of creating the entry in the cache file.

I've seen a few lower end Epson and Lexmark machines like this.

I just went to Lexmark's site, and they have a workaround for this though:

So, I have a problem. I manage a small office with about 15 users. it is set up with a peer to peer network. there is a server, but it is not really a server. the only thing it serves is on program and a few files for excel, and word. However, for some reason, this computer has a problem allowing everyone on. Eventually durring the day, as everyone begins to log on, not everyone can get on. Kind of like a first come, forst serve basis. It is rather frustrating as nearly everyone has to be connected to this computer at one time. I don't know if there is some configuration that I am not aware of, or is that a windows 2000 restriction? it is not installed with server software, So I am not sure what is going on... can anyone help????

A:Windows 2000 peer to peer problem

Windows 2000 has a built in limitation of 10 connections as far as I know.

You need to purchase a Server version of the software, and pay for the appropriate licences to have more than this number connected.
