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

That will reduce the number. Maxconnections is the maximum number of total connections -- additional incoming connections will be rejected. (I also made this mistake for a long time.)

Unless you are mining, eight is more than enough.  It probably is even if you are mining.  Unless you are determined to get more, it's likely not worth the effort of tracing down the blockage.

Sounds like you had some kind of active firewall that was interfering until you explicitly told it not to by opening up port 8333.

I usually see one or two connections, but then I don't mine and I've forced the client to reject peer connections except those I explicitly tell it to connect to and forced it not to attempt to use the IRC channel at all.  If there were some way for clients to know that peers don't want them to announce them to their other peers, I'd use that to.

That is an indication that you can initiate connections, but any other peer trying to contact you is blocked.  It's harmless, anyway.

Varies heavily for me. Sometimes it will stay for hours at no more than 15 and sometimes it will get 120 connections in under a minute.

I'm in back of boondocks on a 45km wireless link (max 500 Kbps down) and if I open up to all connections, which I need to just make a node connection sometimes, it gets to >100 in no time and swamps my connection ... (10 Gbyte limit per month).

Anybody want to PM me some IP's I can point at to reliably get a connection without having to drown in bitcoin traffic? (I think there is something in client to that in conf file isn't there?)

edit: ooops, meant Kbps not Mbps
