    "No more connections can be made through this remote computer"

    I'm currently trying to set up a Homegroup for a small organization, and have very limited experience with setting up networks of this kind. We have recently acquired two new laptops in addition to the four already running on an established Homegroup. While I am able to connect all six to the Homegroup, if I go to open shared files on one of the computers through Network, I get the message:

    "(Name) is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

    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."

    Note that if I turn off one of the computers, I can connect all five and access all files from all machines through Network. But from what I've read, there should be no limit on the number of PCs connected to a Homegroup. Is there some limitation inherent to the computer that won't allow this many connections? Does this have something to do with Network and not the Homegroup? Is there a way to increase the number of connections allowed?

    All computers are running the latest version of Windows 10 and have sharing permissions set up such that all files should be accessible from all computers.

    Thanks for taking the time to help me out. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to the forum. First you cant be running the lates version of windows10 1803 as homegroup has now been removed from windows. As it some point windows will update to 1803 and you wont have homegroups so its best to remove it now so your prepared by using workgoups.

    There is a limit on shares being used for all windows so if you have differnt versions ie home or pro they may be different
    to find out open a Admin cmd prompt then type on each pc

    net config server
