Socket.Listen() maximum

What is the maximum value for "backlog" when running on Windows 2003 server?
It is my impression this value is based on the OS so Windows XP Pro has a
maximum value of 10.

Based on the document requesting the maximum number of connection from
socket options will throw an exception.

John

Hello, John!

JJH> Based on the document requesting the maximum number of connection from

Yes, the exception will be thrown if you will try to set socket option with SocketOptionName.MaxConnections.

AFAIK in XP 10 is the established connection limit. Pending connections (connections not established ) can be much more.

In 2k3 AFAIK there are no predefined limits for connections number.

Thanks for the response.

I did find a reg setting for max connection in Win2K3 and the default was
like 16 million "0xFFFFFE".
