Hello there,

We have a G4 running OS X 10.4.10 client for light-duty filesharing in an office with 9 users. We all use the same username/password to log in. Every once in a while, we get a notice claiming "This server will not allow any additional users to log in. Please try again later."

I assume some connections aren't being closed properly, because restarting the server fixes the issue, and all 9 can reconnect.

This seems to be due to a limitation in AFP in OS X client, which allows a maximum of 10 Users. I was hoping that SharePoints would remove that limit and free me of having to restart the machine twice a week.

Does anyone know of a way of disabling the limit (or at least pushing it higher), even if this means delving into command liine?

Thank you for your efforts.

Alain Chammas

Unfortunately, this is something that Apple has hard coded into the AppleFileServer. You can use samba instead of AFS or you can buy Mac OS X Server (not really a great option).
