ValueCondition

 

Remarks

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.
