Winsock Limit in Number Of Connections ??
Posted on 2003-11-24
I have developed a program using winsock.
ie. Winsock on both the server and client.
i am using a winsock array
The job has grown out of proportion to that originally specified.,originally only 300 clients were specified.
I am now told there will be 2000 clients connected to the server( Win2000) (winsock)
I am led to believe that there is a limit of approx 400 clients which may be connected to any one server via winsock.at any one time, for the server to run satisfactorily???
Would appreciate some advice as to the 400 limit, and is there a solution to the problem.
Am i best to stay with winsock, or is there some other way.
I really have to stay with winsock as tghe program is complete and working 100%
I am hoping i will not need multiple servers.
Appreciate any advice that anyone can offer
