[Samba] Hiting a limit to the number of connections

Users on our Citrix server ran into the same problem.
The limit is hardcoded in the source and is 128 from 2.2.3a
and onwards. I don't know what it is in 2.2.1, but probably the
same. The solution is in the mailarchive somewhere.

You have to change the constant:


in source/smbd/conn.c

Kind Regards, Hans.
