I have a server which allows only 2 connection at the same time. This can be a pain as you can't login if you are third. In another instance (if I remember correctly), the maximum allowed was 5 users.
Does allowing more users to simultaneously access the server a bad idea, does it slows down the server and does it has any other draw backs.
Note that in my case, the server is not really high end. But what if the server was fast enough lets say Quad core with 8GB+ RAM. How many simultaneous users should be allowed in that case.
Edit : The server is local server which is also acting as webserver. It also keeps corporate data on a network drive or on harddisk itself. I am talking about remote desktop connections.
