Retrieves the maximum number of concurrent connections to a Web server.
HRESULT value = object.get_maxConnectionsPerServer(* p);
the maximum number of concurrent connections.
The maximum number of connections per server returned by the IHTMLWindow6::maxConnectionsPerServer property is determined by the HTTP version (1.0 or 1.1) used by the server. This number applies to any Web server connection, not just to downloads.
The IHTMLWindow6::maxConnectionsPerServer attribute will return
6 on a broadband connection unless a user or an administrator has overridden the default settings. If the client computer is connected through dial-up, IHTMLWindow6::maxConnectionsPerServer will return
2 if connected to an HTTP 1.1 server or
4 if connected to an HTTP 1.0 server.
To learn how to change the connection limits from their default values, see Connectivity Enhancements in Internet Explorer 8.
