how many connection do you recommend for single ip in
1) share hosting (wordpress joomla ..)
2) download server (mkv mp3 zip ...)
also when clients use download manager software like IDM flashget etc, how many connection made by every files that they try to download?
ex: if 10 clients download file 1.zip with idm, how many connection thsi download have ?
if they download this file without download manager software and use their browser , it make only one connection ???
Internet Explorer versions 6 and 7 use two persistent connections while version 8 uses six. Persistent connections time out after 60 seconds of inactivity which is changeable via the Windows Registry.
In Firefox, the number of simultaneous connections can be customized (per-server, per-proxy, total). Persistent connections time out after 115 seconds (1.92 minutes) of inactivity which is changeable via the configuration.
I think IDM have about 15 connection max per download.
>>1) share hosting (wordpress joomla ..)
Its depends on your server configuration, Its better to block the user in terms of bandwidth usage.
>>2) download server (mkv mp3 zip ...)
Download can limited by Bandwidth usage.
