Subject RE: [users@httpd] Max number of connections from a single client to a server.

What connections? HTTP is stateless and each request is a separate transaction. Having said
that, HTTP/1.1 allows "Keep-alive" so a client can send many requests over the same TCP/IP
connection (see 

I'm not entirely sure I understand your question (possibly because you may not understand
exactly how HTTP works?). Why not describe exactly what you want to happen and what you don't

Subject: [users@httpd] Max number of connections from a single client to a server.

Hi all,
What is the max number of connection a server allows from a single
client and how to change it(both in windows and linux).
And how exactly the server determines the number of connections from a
single client? I dont think it uses client's IP (there can be many 
people behind same NAT). I think this is based on session. Can someone
enlighten me here.
