Just wondering... I am not sure. I'm pretty sure its only one as I can't seem to connect more than one client at a time.

I'm pretty sure the server OS's (such as 2k server and 2003) don't have this limit but I currently have XP installed on this box.

I noticed that every time a second connection was made an error was generated in the event log, but again, not sure if this could be avoided somewhere else.

"The following error occurred in the Point to Point Protocol module on port: VPN5-1, UserName: SOMETHING\SOMETHINGELSE. Because another connection of your type is in use, the incoming connection cannot accept your connection request."

Any suggestions, or should I just upgrade to 2003 sometime?

Your correct in that XP will only accept one incoming VPN connection at a time...

Do you really need more than one incoming VPN connection at a time for a home desktop?

If you do, you might look into running a SSH server on the XP box. SSH handles multiple incoming connections...or upgrade to a server class OS like Windows 2003 Server...

Thanks.
The reason why we needed it here was because we run our own LAN primarily over wireless however a flatmates wireless card just died (still works, just bluescreens the machine after a couple of minutes (reinstalled OS and have done hours worth of testing on other computers)), so she needs to VPN in through the building network that we have here (which only allows internet access to one MAC address per room and my router is the device already, furthermore file sharing is limited to internal lan).

Sometimes I'd like to use VPN over traditional cable because I sometimes have huge files, and if I'm somewhere else in the building (outside of wireless range) then I can simply VPN too.

I might look at SSH as suggested but more likely I'll just upgrade to 2003 server, If I can remember where I put those CD's.
