Like the subject says.

When a friend of mine is downloading music from my HFS. He can only download 2 songs at a time. When he clicks on the third one, this one begins right after one of the first 2 is finished.

In the limits drop down menu everything is disabled. He should be able to download more than 2 songs at a time.

Thnx in advance

Look @ Attachment

I can confirm this, no more than 2 files can be downloaded simultaneously.

Try using a different browser and see if the result vary.
HFS cannot force the browser to use more connections.

Why don't i have the same problem when i use a normal webhostinging software like WAMP. At the left bottom of the program screen it also says something with 2 connections all the time.... Why does my friend need to use something different then IE7? IE7 is mostly used.

IE 7 and firefox limit the trafic to 2 simultaneous connections to one server-ip or proxy.

It seems to be a http1.1 recomendation. There are some patches that can change this values in the net.

But in case of a home-server (even with a good DSL) the total troughput will not increase significantly with more connections, it may even decrease as each connection needs resources.

Can you point me in the right direction to "upgrade" this to more simultaneous connections? TIA!

I regret, I can't, because I never recomend a program or patch that was not tested by me or a reliable friend of mine.

Try to google for example with "explorer conection limit" ... good luck!

But don't forget that's not on serverside where the limit is - the limit is on client side. ┬┐do you want that your visitors patch or modify their explorers only to download more files simultaneously. If your upload-speed isn't  higher than some 100 kBps your visitors won't have any benefit from having more conections. When a users conection download-speed is higher than your upload bandwidth, more conections will only slow down data-flow.

instead of downloading a patch that could possibly do damage to your computer, I suggest that your friend and everyone else just use a download manager that is designed for multiple downloads/connection.

Agreed, using a download manager and removing 'prevent leeching' opens HFS up to better performance. A speed increase from 12KB\s to 140KB\s from Giant Eagles server :)

And anyway, downloading 2 files at the same time wont make them download any quicker lol, one after the other will have the same effect, hence with a download manager you can queue up files :)

Ye, im with TSG here.

The best way to download multiple files, is to download them with a download manager (Queue) or the whole folder at once "~folder.tar"

I found a possible way to remove the client side connection limit...

It's a simple registry patch, if people are interested in the code let me know.
