Mapped network drive

Hi,

I have a small network running with 5 computers using xp home sp2 and am
having trouble getting one of the systems to connect to a network share
folder.

The system can see the shared directory on the other machine and access it,
I can map the drive and everything works fine until I reboot. Problem is
that I use a program on all the machines that access's data from the
"server" at startup and this one particular machine appears to not reconnect
the drive automatically, I can browse the mapped drive from the link in my
computer and as soon as I do my program will run. There are no firewalls, or
av .

Any ideas appreciated

If the pseudo-server is running XP Home, you are probably running into the
concurrent inbound connections limitation. Upgrade the pseudo-server to XP
Pro.

Inbound connections limit in XP - http://support.microsoft.com/?id=314882

5 - XP Home/Vista Home Basic
10 - Vista Home Premium/Vista Ultimate/XP Pro
49 - SBS 2000
74 - SBS 2003
Unlimited for full Server O/Ses

Note that the limitation is on connections and not computers. Each computer
can, and usually does, make more than one connection to shares on a
"server" machine.
