Unlimited connections for Windows

This one is simple: Say you have more then 20 peeps and as much PCs that need access to a shared folder. No file server eh? Well, there’s a way around it. You will break your client Windows OS EULA mind you, but sharing is caring so I consider this one being worth the risk.

Anyways, run Registry Editor (for those not knowing how, do this: press Windows Key + R, type “regedit” in the run command box and press Enter) and create a DWORD named EnableConnectionRateLimiting in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters. Set Decimal or HEX value to 0 and you can share with the world!

Or just merge this into your Registry.

Always do a backup of same Registry before you change critical system functionality

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

If you are to run net config server you’ll still get 20 connections max on your Win 7 machine, but don’t worry, that’s just for show. It works as expected.
