Subject Re: Tomcat intermittent failures
Date Wed, 10 Apr 2002 06:07:27 GMT
I have seen similar behaviour before on a Win2K box, but it was a Win2K
professional computer. The problem is that Win2K pro only allows a certain
number of incoming connections, I believe 10.  We saw this during unit
testing of components when developers were testing on their own computers
(before moving to a QA box).

What I don't know off the top of my head, is whether it is possible a
setting exists in Win2K server to control the number of connections to
allow. Just thought this info might give someone else, or you, an idea or
two.

Hope it helps.

Joe
