Re: Feature Request: Limiting Connections July 02, 2010, 10:20:20 PM I reduced max outbound connections from 15 to 8 in RC4. 15 was way more than we needed for redundancy. 8 is still plenty of redundancy. As the nodes upgrade to this version, this will cut in half the number of connections that inbound accepting nodes get. If anyone wants more than 8 connections, they can open port 8333 on their firewall.
