Default windows 2000 pro

Okay, this is a surprisingly stupid question.

Assuming there are no other variables in the situation, is there a limit to the number of machines that could be in a Peer to Peer network if all the machines are running Windows 2000?

Nope. only limited by your theoretical maximum Router/switch apacity, which is somthing like 65000 computers.

Can anyone else verify that? not saying I don't believe you...I'd just like to hear it from more than one person.

see, that's what I thought as well. but this vp I'm working with swears up and down that you can only have 10 users max without having a server running win2k server....which makes utterly no sense. but I figured I'd post here and get a few more collaborating answers before I call him on it.

lol, thats funny as hell, I know first had that you can have many many computers on a router with hubs or switches attached as long as they all have unique internal IP address. I have had 25 on a network like that.

Welcome to the "Microsoft" age.
Seloce, the Offical Microsoft Curriculum (sp?) teaches that it is not advisable to have a network of more than 10 computers without a server. That is where your vp is getting that "fact", in reality, listen to Ecniv, he is correct.

Good point Guy! That probably is where he is getting his information.

this just gets to be too rich.

I just got off the phone with my corporate office. they are now insisting that any information requests sent by a computer running Windows 2000 Server have a higher priority than those sent by Windows 2000 Pro.

Me: "..........."

I really hope that someone can back me up on this. That really isn't true, is it?

Remember...we're still talking about a Peer to Peer network.
