Re: max connection limit?

The README file also mentions this:

If your server gets a lot of use and your users start getting the error
    *** Sorry, but the server cannot accept any more connections right now.
    *** Please try again later.
when they try to connect, it's because your server has run out of UNIX file
descriptors.  If you'd like to allow more folks to connect, you'll have to bump
up the limit (though there's a hard limit in the UNIX kernel that you won't be
able to exceed).  To bump up the limit as far as it will go, remove the `#' at
the beginning of the line
    #unlimit descriptors
in the `restart' script before starting up your server.
