I have not been able to open more than 20 sockets on
any one computer.  Every time I exceed this amount
I get the error telling me that there is not buffer space
available.  Is there a way to increase this space?  I thought
it might be handled with the config.sys BUFFERS= line but
it doesn't seem to change anything.

Assuming your talking about Win95, please look at the MS KB article at:

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q158/4/74.asp

I think you will get what you want by modifying the MaxConnections key to a higher value.  It's default is 100 but Win95 uses a number of connections internally so in your case, you only able to get 53.  Remember, you have to reboot after modifying this number.  Don't make it too large, however, as you will cause the TCP/IP driver to hog memory.
