From memory, I think the limit was closer to 20. I just tried to login
there to double-check, but I got the "WARNING: REMOTE HOST
IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" message from ssh. I haven't changed the
host key, so I decided to stop right there. Possibly Randy knows what's

You're welcome. I rarely had to do anything to that machine. It's one
of the most reliable pieces of equipment I've ever seen. It's been
getting hammered by CVSup clients 24/7 for close to 10 years, and it's
still got all the original parts (even hard drives) except for the RAM,
which I changed out to ECC early on. I don't remember it ever crashing.
It has been up continuously without any attention from me ever since I
upgraded it to 4.11 almost 2 years ago. (Yes, I was paying attention to
security advisories. :-)
