This depends on the number of protocol families and the uniqueness of remore connection.
1)For the same protocol  say TCP  you can bind more than one socket obn the same port ,addr combination as long as the( remote add,port) is different.e.g you can use SO_REUSEADDR option to do this.
2)You can bind sockets with same add,port pair if the protcol  is different.e.g you can bind to (add,1020) one UDP socket and one TCP socket.

Hope this clear you doubts.

Yes, I'll use TCP/IP.

And remote ip is always differ.

Several clients will connect to same addr and port, simultaneously.

In other word, how many clients are able to be connected with same ip and port ?

Thank you..

sorry.

In next time, I'll give point to you.

This is not specifically limited at all in theory but in practice, many TCPIP stacks use a 16-bit value to store the incoming connection "handle".  In this case, you will be limited to 64K simultaneous connections on a port.  In practice, however, operating system limitations will be exceeded long before this happens.  Other systems use a 32-bit "handle" and will essentially be unlimited with 4G possible connections.

You really need to check with your operating system vendor to be sure.  Since you haven't said what you're using, we can only deal with generalities here.

Yes, that's what I said.

It's implementation and perhaps even "current condition" dependent.

Thank you everybody..

Your comments is very helpful to me.

I'll make on-line MUG.

So, I'd wanted to know that

"How many people can connect with our game server at the sametime"

If you have another something to advise

to me , please don't hesitate.
