<MaxConnectionRate> tag talks about rate at which connections are accepted or processed by server. It wont limit number of simulataneous connections at any given point of time. You can use MaxConnections but that will limit at vhost level (http://help.adobe.com/en_US/flashmediaserver/configadmin/WS5b3ccc516d4fbf351e63e3d119f2926 bcf-7ff6.html#WS5b3ccc516d4fbf351e63e3d119f2926bcf-7e7d)
Do you want to restrict at the application instance level or at the server level? If the former, you can write a basic Server-Side ActionScript file that will limit the connections to two users, and reject the others.
As i am testing on the multicast function of FMS4, I wanna restrict the number of connection to the server.
At this time, i dont want to write the actionscript program because time is limit and wanna find out FMS is suitable for my case.
So if i want to restrict at server level, any config file have to edit? Thanks!
if restrict the user connection to 2
Server -- Client 1
-- Client 2
How about the 3rd user request for the video?
Will it like this for multicast p2p:
Server -- Client 1 -- Client 3
-- Client 2
