Is there some kind of maximum TCP connection setting in Java? I have a server
application that accepts incoming TCP socket connections. I set up a very
large pool of threads that listen for connection requests. These objects
do just fine until I exceed 640 simultaneous connections. At this point
I get an exception on "serverSocket.accept();" The error returned is "Too
many open files". I seem to have plenty of memory. I've adjusted the heap
settings to much higher values than I feel I need but nothing seems to improve
on this 640 limit.

I'm running this on Redhat Linux 7.2 with JDK 1.3.1_02.

Even if you're not sure what the problem is, please respond with any suggestions
you may have. This problem is a serious show-stopper for my project right
now.

Thanks in advance,
