There’s not a LOT of users (maybe 1-4 a time, something like 5-15 unique in a day), the main problem is that there can be in excess of 200 sockets open to a single IP. I don’t think increasing the socket limit would fix it, just delay the crash a little. I could get you any information on the problem you want since I’ll have the crash around every hour when someone uses myTunes redux to get music from my server, and somewhat infrequently otherwise. I set the service up to restart itself and the crash happened 16 times today >_>. I think the problem is something like when a client fails to open a proper connection, a socket is left open on my machine for some reason and it adds up since they never go away. :/

Yeah. I’m just wondering what it is that mtunesredux is doing that differently than iTunes that I’m not closing the socket on my end.

I’ll look into it though — I have mytunesredux installed here somewhere.
