Hello Mike,
We (Samba) doesn't sent the TEXT message back to the client,
just a standard error number, that the client intreprets
and uses text that IT is compiled to display based on that
error message.  So there's nothing you can change in the 
SAMBA source; you would have to locate the message in the 
windows client and try to modify it there - not likely!

Subject: max connections error message

We're using the max connections option to limit users to one open
session through a VB app front end.  max connections is set to 1.  When
users try to start another session of the app, they get the error

     "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"

This is good that they get a warning, but I'd like to change it to a
more personalised message with the name of the app &etc.  Do I have to
modify the source & recompile or is there another way to change this
