How can you see how much concurrent connects you can handle? I use windows 7 and I have read the licensing term and it said Windows 7 has a limit of 20. But, when I got the Half-open limit fix, it said I have no limit. I don't know how I have no limit because I have never played around with anything pertaining that that.

So can anyone tell me a way of testing how many concurrent connections I can handle?

According to this answer Windows 7 does not have a connection limit anymore. The same is true for Windows Vista with SP2.

Here is a bit more about the topic.

Ty ty. Btw, if you don't me piggy backing my own question, can your isp also limit your connection? – FireDragonMule Sep 7 '10 at 8:20
Don't know about that although I doubt it. Some could enforce bandwidth cap though. Depends on ISP I guess and on how heavy the traffic is on your connection, both outgoing and incoming. – T. Kaltnekar Sep 7 '10 at 8:52
Yes they can set the modem's maximum concurrent connections – capdragon May 5 '11 at 14:14

The half-open connections limit is different from the limit imposed by licensing. The one in the license refers to the number of remote users accessing your computer, for instance, printing to a shared printer or accessing your Shared Files folder.
