You don't need to be "connected" to the server to work with IB/FB, ie, you
don't need to logon on the server . You just need an open port (3050
default, but you can change this if you want).

There isn't such limit in W2000, in either versions. There isn't such limit
also in W98/W95, so if you want to use a Win98 machine as a FB server for
unlimited connections you can do it (can do it<>go and do it, there are
other factors).

And, by the way, there isn't a 10 incoming network connections either in Win
NT Wks/W2K Prof. The differences between Server Editions are different for
connections: You "can" share your CDROM in a W2K Prof with all network (and
with all internet if you want to) without such limit.

I think you are confusing about the "Windows NT/2K 10 initial licences",
don't you?
