Are you sure about this. Is this any incomming connections, connections
to a particular port, or is it just IIS that limits the connections?
We've run a web server(imatix) on Win2K workstation here and made loads
of conncurrent connections to it fine. My theory is that it's only IIS
on workstation which limits connections to 10. Note apache has a listen
backlog parameter that seems to be ignored on doze?
