100 connections and more in one single thread is no problem. Anyway don't use one thread per connection, that was wasted resource! Since ICS works asynchronous there _basically is no need for multiple threads. However if you want your application scale well with multiple processors and keep your GUI responsive create as many additional threads as CPUs/cores are available and divide work/number of connections accordingly. -- Arno Garrels -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://lists.elists.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
