Try netstat -an | grep -c <port>.  netstat is usually in /sbin/ or /usr/sbin, depending on the version of Linux/Unix you are using.  Of course the grep can be refined.  Hope this helps.

Linux can connect to 65536, roughly.
So subtract the currently connected ports, and you have the amount of available connections for your process.

wintch logged in as recently as 01/29/02 and chose not to update and finalize the open questions, despite
an August request already do to do.  I will post this in them all.

EXPERTS .... please let me know what you believe to be the fair outcome here, since it appears I will be finalizing this if wintch chooses not to within the next 7 days.

Thanks for returning and updating this question.  Can you please tell me why you chose a "B" versus an "A" grade here?  It is always appreciated when grades are less than an A to receive comments as to why so that both experts and future PAQ readers can be advised.

If this was in error, let me know so I can correct this.

Thank you.
