I've looked around a bit to find an answer to this one, no luck. Setting up my SO's 98 machine for Azureus (188.8.131.52), no NAT or port problems, torrents will start and get a nice green face. However, as soon as the number of total connections passes 20, the tracker will go offline with this message: offline (SocketException:Nobuffer space available (maximum connections reached?): connect) No further connections will be established, and nothing else is able to use the internet connection once this condition is incurred. There is plenty of HD space, that's not a problem. Her machine has 512MB memory, easily enough. I've looked at all of Azureus' config settings with no result. As far as I can tell, something somewhere is deciding that the maximum number of sockets has been reached, even though it's absurdly low. Any help would be appreciated!
