Please try to open that many tcp connections between two IPs and tell me
if it works! Finding out in which way our software opens the sockets 
would be enough work for two persons for at least two days. It's old
software we try to get running on a new system. Very (very very) old
sources! ;)

Some guy told me that maybe iptables is the cause of this problem. You 
think he's right? We have to verify that. May take a few days since the 
collegue responsible for this isn't in the office right now. Just that 
much about "it's urgent" (my team leader's definition). *laugh*

Thanks for your interest in this problem. I'll keep you up to date.
