Subject Re: WWW Form Bug Report: "sockets left in FIN_WAIT_2 lingering state" on SunOS 4.x (fwd)

It defines a number that relates in some way to the number of not yet
established connections permitted.  There are a couple of states (eg. 
connection established, but waiting for the accept() to complete) which
fall into this catagory, SYN_RCVD is one.  You can see up to 3/2*somaxconn
connections in the SYN_RCVD state, depending on other things.

The exact implementation varies somewhat between BSDs.
