We have already discuss this on this list, quite often. As long as the users
don't login to the server, just connect to IB/FB from port 3050, there is
not such limit control. The limit is only to the users login to the server.
Does your friend need to login to the server? I think that was the cause.
I don't like Windows, but we have to live with it... I have many
installations with NT 5 user servicing more than 30 users with no problem.
(Except the usual problems of using NT as OS, of course).
