Increase IIS Connections running on XP

When developing locally on IIS, with the addition of AJAX, I found myself running out of connections -- the default is 10. Turns out you can bump the connections up to 40. Here's what you need to do:
  1. Open the command prompt
  2. Navigate to \inetpub\adminscripts
  3. Enter the following command: cscript adsutil.vbs set w3svc/MaxConnections 40
  4. Restart IIS ( you can use iisreset at the same command prompt)
That's all there is to it.
