Maximum Connections refers to the maximum connections of the client to the server at the same time. CCProxy will refuse the extra connections of the client.

Download Bandwidth refers to the download KBytes bandwidth per second of the client. Upload Bandwidthrefers to the upload KBytes bandwidth per second of the client.

In most cases, we set the maximum connections for client as 5 and download bandwidth 10KB to limit the client's bandwidth.

Bandwidth Monitoring

When some users access the Internet through CCProxy, you will find a moving yellow curve on the green grids of CCProxy. It shows the total Internet bandwidth usage of your LAN. You can adjust the display scale of the yellow curve by right clicking mouse button on the green grids.

If you want to watch each user's current bandwidth, you can click "Monitor" and open "Connection Information" dialog box. Click "Account" tab, and you will see the bandwidth of each client (Figure 2).
