When you are running many Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, or Microsoft Network 3.0 clients on your network over IPX, and the clients access Windows NT-based servers by using Direct Hosting over IPX, you may receive "Stop 0x1E in Srv.sys" error messages on the server.


Direct Hosting support is limited to 4,096 session IDs (SIDs), and Windows NT does not handle exceeding this limit properly.
