That's the maximum number of connections, which is unlikely to be what
he's running up against. It's more likely the original poster is
hitting the max number of half-open connections, which is limited to 10
(exactly the figure he's seeing). Perhaps the 4226 event just isn't
appearing for some reason. I've had that myself sometimes.
There is an unofficial OS-level patch for this behaviour at this
No idea if it works or if it's safe, but many people use it.
