Having more connections isn't better.  The default limit is 8.

You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike.

I thought that it's only a limit if one is using upnp, which I am not (or at least should not)

make sure you have your router allowing extra conenctions though

In the Beginning there was CPU , then GPU , then FPGA then ASIC, what next I hear to ask ....

your ports aren't actually forwarded properly

or

nobody wants to connect to you (wait a few hours)

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

You don't need more than 8 connections anyway.  There is no benefit from having more connections.

It's all right, it looks good now.

Thanks to all.
