Subject Re[2]: [firebird-support] TCP/IP connection limits
Author Miki Avramovic

My Information System is on Linux server and Firebird 1.52
We have over then 70 connections in lan and over then 20 connections
through B2B system over the Internet at same time. All working
perfectly. Workstatins (cliens) is Windows or Internet Browsers.

Best Regards!
