[ConfigurationPropertyAttribute("maxconnection", IsRequired = true, DefaultValue = )]
public int MaxConnection { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
An integer that specifies the maximum number of connections.

This property specifies how many simultaneous connections are allowed between the local computer and the remote computer. The remote computer is specified using the Address property.

The MaxConnection property is per WebRequest.ConnectionGroupName. If an application is not changing WebRequest.ConnectionGroupName from the default, then the MaxConnection property applies to the entire application domain. If only a single application domain is running in your application, then the MaxConnection property setting is application-wide.
