when client download a archivable folder (~folder.tar?recursive) with many simultaneous  connections,

hfs can not limit the connections ,even set limit at "max download simultaneous from single addr" and "max simultaneous  downloads". limit isn't work with archivable folder links.

but the limit is work well when client down a single file.

In Limits -> try -> "max connections from a single address" so HFS can limit the connections to what you want it set at

An archivable folder is a single file, therefore, according to your statement above, it should work well.

don't advice "max connections". i even put a warning on the dialog, because browsers have problems with it.
there's a bug in max downloads and i will fix it.

yhm_7 was having problems limiting connections.  Are you saying my response above is wrong?  (your choice of words in your comment -> don't advice "max connections" doesn't make sense).

I'm using build 126 and there is no warning on the dialog for "max connections" or "max connections from a single address".

no. i'm saying he will face other problems using that feature, as others on the forum.
i would like to remove it, but someone may need it.

Hi ,maverick.  I think ["In Limits -> try -> "max connections from a single address" so HFS can limit the connections to what you want it set at"]  is not very well to slove my question.

Because (A)"max connections from a single address" and (B)"max download simultaneous from single addr"  have different function.

Normally,  the former shouled be larger than the latter , this can ensure every user can brower web page when he downlode file with a large connections (even larger than A or B). So I always do ont limit (A)

Thanks a lot to rejetto and his HFS.  and sorry for my hard english.

Sorry, but problem is still here.

i spent last 15 minutes testings, trying the limit with normal files, with folder archives, and with both mixed, with a limit set to 1 first and then 2.
all was fine here, and cannot find any problem.
could you please tell me how to reproduce the problem you are facing?

Don't know :(
I just tried to remove all configuration files and start from alone hfs.exe - just for integrity of test. Et voila - Download Master opened 5 connections. Look on the screenshot, please.
