Subject Re: [firebird-support] TCP/IP connection limits
Author Steve Wiser
Wow. Microsoft is now protecting us from ourselves... If I want to
send/receive a lot of packets I should be allowed to (as long as I am
intentionally deciding to do this, not by accident). I am surprised
there isn't a registry entry to override this limit...

Actually I just googled something that could work:;EN-US;314053
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip
\Parameters and create a new dword value called TcpNumConnections.
There you can set the maximum number of connections allowed.

Maybe that will help. However, please note that we don't use Windows
with Firebird or Interbase and only have 1 Windows server so I am no
expert on this.
