-====== (un)Limited 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. 
-<WRAP center round important 60%>​Always do a backup of same Registry before you change critical system functionality</​WRAP>​

-<code ini> 
-Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 
-  
-[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters] 
-"​EnableConnectionRateLimiting"​=dword:​0 
-</​code>​ 
-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.
