Our project team is trying to re-evaluate our Tectia settings because we noticed that there were instances wherein connections to the server fails, even if there was no network loss. We are currently suspecting that this may be related to the maximum number of connections.

If we use the following maximum settings or if we increase the values that we currently have, would there be any other issues that may arise or that we may need to consider?

Maximum number of connections = 256 Maximum number of connections = 40

We are using SSH Tectia Server version "".

Thanks in advance. :)

Please note that there have been some performance related fixes in new versions then, but please provide the OS that the SSH Tectia Server is installed on. There are some systems that can see some problems if they don't have the correct settings.

For example on Solaris:

Please check the file descriptors ulimit on your server side machine:

ulimit -n

We sometimes see issues when the Solaris server is hitting the limit of file descriptors (servant process). In Solaris the default value for file descriptor is 256 and that is too low. We recommend 8192.

If you are hitting that limit, it is likely the you will get processes that don't close on your server side.
