Hi, simple question

I made a VB client that connects to 40 different servers for various things via winsock.. it uses 40 different ports (all in the 5000 range.. dont think they are used by anything else) .. 1 for each server

is this bad practice?  should I have set it up so it connects to 1 server that is connected to the other 40?  

its working fine.. everything works good.. just curious about the efficiency and if I am ever going to run into any problems with having too many outbound connections from 1 app

thanks
