Each connected PC will draw more than one connection. I had a client 
attempt to use a Windows 7 Pro 64bit box to host WSUS. It worked, until 
three or four PCs connected for updates, then the network of fifty plus 
systems started going ape trying to get to the updates. On a network 
with two to four other systems this may work, however.
