Windows 2008 File Server Capacity stress testing

hi, i wish to see how many simultaneous shared connections my test Windows 2008 r2 file server can support. i have investigated the microsoft file serve capacity tool, but found it too cumbersome and administratively heavy to setup.
can anyone please recommend a good tool/app for stress testing our file server. My emphasis is on the number of user connections the file server can support.

64k-1 is maximum sockets according to winsock API
You can benchmark disk subsystem with iobench to see how many parallel writes impose no speed penalty
Then confirm results over network wire with and without jumbo frames.
