License Question about Running a Web Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi! I am going to use Windows XP as a web server because I need a web server but I don't have Windows Server.
    I read the Windows XP EULA and it said "You can access this computer no more than ten times under a network."
    I am running a Internet Server using XAMPPLite which will be used by more than ten people at one time.

    Is running a Web Server on Windows XP against the Windows XP EULA?
