    TCP overhead was the cause, too many connections!
    over a few weeks, I had 4-5 instances of multple event failures in the
    application log, followed by the SBS machine rebooting.

    I found the program that was opening oooh-- thousands upon thousands of tcp
    connections, which my fixed purpose router handled before the SBS box, but
    it cannot.
    I don't need the 1000s of connections, and can adjust that one program, but
    would like to know what the limit on TCP connections is around

    I've been researching "tcp max connections" in conjunction with SBS, but
    everything that returns is for premium not basic under ISA

    so, my inquiries today..

    in a non ISA enviroment, how do you/can you limit max tcp connections?
    what is a good 'shoot for limit'/range (?) and is it determined how much by
    the hardware?
