I'm having problems getting my W2K and OS/2 machines to share SMB shares. The OS/2 machine can connect all day long to the W2K machine, but the W2K machine cannot connect to the OS/2 machine. This is the message I get:

"The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error occured: No more connections can be made to this remote computer at this time because there are already as many connections as the computer can accept."

(To see the actual error: http://outpostbbs.net/os2error.jpg)

I recently had to partially reinstall OS/2 due to some tinkering around that I shouldn't have been doing with a production machine. <G> I'm wondering if I have to uninstall then reinstall Peer to get it to work right? I was told something about a "ghost computer" but I wasn't able to find any information where I was told to look.

Any and all help is appreciated, but please leave your Windows bashing at the door.

Thanks,
Sean

W2K is consuming all your network sessions. The fix is to edit a single W2K registry setting. I have it here someplace...

OK, can't find it, but here's a REXX script that you can run on OS/2 to disconnect the unused W2K sessions.

Try this...

------------------------------
1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
2. Locate and then click the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanworkstation\parameters
3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD.
4. Type EnableDownLevelLogOff, and then press ENTER.
5. On the Edit menu, click Modify.
6. Type 1, and then click OK.
--------------------------------


I hope that helps you...

Indeed, that was the exact fix. I had to reboot and then it worked perfectly. Thanks a lot! I do a lot of work on my BBS from this (W2K) machine since it has a larger screen (for now).

I've printed this out to a PDF file for future reference.

Thanks again,
Sean

Thanks to Ben, I did that registry fix and it worked. I also downloaded that ZIP and have it in the BBS's utilities directory for future use.

Thanks for your help also. It's greatly appreciated.

Later,
Sean
