Hello -
Let me apologize in advance for my ignorance.  I'm an old socket guy.

I am using ACE_Acceptor and would like to configure the number of
accepts (1..n) the Acceptor will allow.

Basically, if nConnections = 1, the ACE_Acceptor will create one
SvcHandler and any more connection requests should result in
'connection refused' by the requesting peer.  If the connected peer
closes the connection, the next connection request will be accepted.

Using the following, all connection requests are accepted and multiple
SvcHandlers are instantiated.


Gateway::ConnectionAcceptor::ConnectionAcceptor(Gateway* gateway)
    : gateway_ (gateway)
    , svcHandler_(0)
    std::cout << "Gateway::ConnectionAcceptor::ConnectionAcceptor... "
            << "listening on port " << gatewayData_->listenPort
            << std::endl;

   nConnections_ = gatewayData_->nConnections;  // unused at this

    std::cout << "Gateway::ConnectionAcceptor::~ConnectionAcceptor..."
            << std::endl;
    if (svcHandler_)
        delete svcHandler_;
        svcHandler_ = 0;

int Gateway::ConnectionAcceptor::make_svc_handler(SvcHandler*&
    std::cout << "Gateway::ConnectionAcceptor::make_svc_handler..."
            << "  i.e. connection request" << std::endl;

    svcHandler_ = new SvcHandler(gateway_, gatewayData_);
    svcHandler = svcHandler_;
    return 0;

Any ideas would be appreciated.
