How to reset interrupted "net use connections" from other LAN computers / increase max number of connections ?

Post by thohei » Mon, 08 Jan 2007 23:13:58


From several computers in my LAN some connections are established to my Win2000 Pro server with e.g.
"net use" commands.

For some reasons these connection are interrupted/not disconnected in a clean way
from the remote clients computer view.

That means from the local Win2000 computers view these connections are still alive.

As far as I remember the max number of such connections is limited to 4.
Is this correct ?

How can I disconnect/wipe/remove from local Win2000 these connections when the
remote client computer is not alive any more ?

How can I detect if the connections are still valid ?

How can I increase the number of possible connections to my local Win2000 computer ?

* Any details? Possibly check the event log.

* For a Windows 2000 workstation the number is 10


* From a command prompt;

net use /persistent:no
net use * /delete /y

would disconnect all network resources.


* Might depend on what process needs to know.


* Change to a server operating system.

Only 10 concurrent connections under Win 2k pro.


You can't.
