Lack of connections available to a mapped network drive.

I have a server with Windows 2000 and about 13 workstations that used mapped network drives to connect to it. This worked fine when I only had 5 or 6 workstations, but now that I have more, I continually get the error message on workstations that "the connection can't be made because there are no more connections available to the drive". I then have to disconnect a computer to reconnect another one. What can I do to increase the number of connections available on the server?

To get more than 10 concurrent connections you need to run Windows Server software. This is a built-in limitation of the workstation software.
