Only 2 Http Concurrent Connections, Server to Server, .NET

P: n/a
Sorry for the cross post but I was hoping between developers and systems ppl
I can get answer to this question. I've searched; found issues similar to
mine but the solutions are not working.

My situation:

I have an ASP.net web app running on Server 2003 (Server 1) that calls a
service on a different Server 2003 (Server 2) via HTTP.

Problem:

Server 1 and Server 2 only have two established concurrent connections over
http. I need at least fifty. I've created a test page from Server 1 that
threads 20 simulations HTTP calls to Server 2. There are still only two
connections. Logging from the test page clearly details that only 2 calls
are being made at a time.
Question:
How do I increase the number of HTTP connections between the two servers?
Can I also allow Windows XP (via IIS) to use more than 2 HTTP connections?

Thanks for any help you can provide. I'm at a loss understanding the
how/why and what to do to fix.

wow, look at how many groups you posted it to. You must be desperate. You
can find the maxconnection setting in your config file set to 2 by default.
Bump this number up at your discretion. It is not free, there is a price to
pay for this which is why it is set conservatively at 2.
