ICS Limitations

  griffo 17:51 15 Sep 2003

we are using a W98SE PC to connect to the internet and suspect there may be a limit to the number of concurrent connections within ICS. Can anyone please advise 1. is this so, how many? 2. suggest the best alternative software for 8 or 9 connections?

cheers - I suspect you may be right, we have been using 5 connections for some time and have recently added a 6th. Although it has been fine most of the time, I guess that's because all 6 weren't on together?

A reformat isn't really on as the PC in question acts as our proxy server and we don't really have the knowledge to go this way. Winroute may be OK, does it effectively enlarge the number of concurrent connections we could have?

is this right? apparently XP only allows 10 (so I'm told), so Q-Bie's info looks likely? Sorry to question, just looking for the right way out of our problem. Thanks for your interest, welcome anything.

that certainly endorses your understanding - I'm sure you're right. Thanks again, we will investigate Winroute to see if that will solve it - cheers
