    Win 7 allows 20 inbound SMB connections, up from 10 in XP/Vista.

    Can someone please post the result for Win8

    From an elevated command prompt:
    # net config server

    Win 7 result
    Maximum Logged On Users 20
    Maximum open files per session 16384

    On 8 it tells:

    Code:
    Maximum Logged On Users               20
    Maximum open files per session        16384
    Idle session time (min)               15
    Is there a patch avl for 7 to extend this limit? I am right now working on a 'Windows 8 Patcher' that patches the Terminal Sever (termsrv.dll) and removes the watermarks.

    Thanks :)

    No patch to remove the incoming SMB limit that I have ever seen, and it is something I looked for.

    I guess the limit is somewhere in mrxsmb.sys (and mrxsmb10.sys, mrxsmb20.sys) of C:\Windows\System32\drivers. When I get some time I'll look into that. Another approach would be reversing the net command, and checking where it gets the connection limit from (registry? hard coded?).
