I think that’s a misdiagnosis of the issue there. That bit of code is sizing the read buffer not limiting the number of connections. I’d start by logging the result and socketError to see if that sheds any light. However I think the info here will sort it:

Hi Folks I was a bit perplexed by this so I had a quick look about the engine and I see the issue. The problem is you are using `offset` which works on characters. Characters in LiveCode are neither unicode codepoints or bytes. They are graphemes. This means that when you have chars to skip

Text strings in LiveCode are native encoded (MacRoman or ISO 8859) where possible and where you don’t explicitly tell the engine it’s unicode (via textDecode) so that they can follow faster single byte code paths. If you use textDecode then the engine will first check if the text can be native
