It's the OS that get notified when a client wants to connecto to your program. If the Backlog is 1, the OS wont accept any more connections before your program have accepted the previous attempt to connect.
On a non-server-platform, this backlog is usually limited to 5 or 10. On a server-platform, this limitation is usually 200. The backlog setting in ICS wont do any good if higher than the OS permits. With a high backlog value, you can have short periods of time where clients try to connect to your program faster then your program can handle, and still dont loose any connections.
