It depends on the version of FMS you're using.  If you're using FMS 3 or above, there's no license limit to the number of connections.  If you're using version 2, there's a definite limit imposed by the licensing.  There are no software / license imposed limits for Red5 in any version.

As far as the hardware goes, of course there will be limits to what it can handle. But if you're using 2 Quad Core Intel Xeon processors with at least 4GB RAM, you can have a lot of viewers ( perhaps 1000 + ) depending of course, on the quality of stream you're putting out.  The lower the bit rate, the more users you can handle.
