    The web server does not have that feature, no.

    Is that a possible option that can be added?

    why would you want to do that? do you know whats happening?
    if you limited connections it would load even slower for the clients.

    leave it alone and let it run.

    How so, Synchronet bbs already use ip.can.

    The ip.can has nothing to do with the maximum concurrent connection limits supported some of the Synchronet server (FTP, mail, terminal). Web browsers *normally* open a bunch of HTTP/TCP connections for a single client "page" view. This is done for performance reasons. So limiting the number of concurrent connections could definitely slow down the experience for clients (web browsers).

    you can use a rule in your firewall.

    Yes, put haproxy in front of it.

    you guys dont get it.

    phil here doesnt understand what's happening. he sees 4 connections from one guy and wonders "gee! why does 1 guy need 4 connections! that makes my system slow!"

    he doesn't understand that without all those threads, the site would load even slower.

    Browsers will use up to 6 connections to a server. Note: these
    connections are usually short lived, and short of supporting HTTP(S) 2+,
    and even then, you're not likely to reduce this.

    It doesn't take up much overhead per connection, especially since most
    of those requests are static assets. I don't know if Synchronet
    supports if-modified-since or E-Tag, and if it does, it's even less
    overhead.

    In general, don't worry about it. If you're seeing more than that, it's probably a search engine, you can limit this, for most good bots with a robots.txt file as appropriate in the web root.

    It's complicated, but you can use a reverse proxy in front of your BBSes
    web application. You may be able to integrate the certificate used for
    TLS (letsyncrypt.js), but don't know enough details to walk one through
    that, I hadn't tried/figured it out.
