Don't call accept more than once.  You can control the number of connection requests that Winsock will queue up (backlog param on 'listen'), but if you want to limit the number of connections accepted, then it is up to your code.  Once you accept a connection, just don't re-issue the call to accept until the first connection is gone, or never if you want one and only one connection to be accepted rather than just one at a time.
