[Dxspider-support] Setting maximum connections

If you have updated in the last couple of days and you are running build 
0.28 or 0.29, please upgrade to latest build which should be 0.30.

This will then work as advertised by checking the maximum number of 
times a node or user is already connected to the rest of the cluster 
cloud on INCOMING connections. As opposed to all connections which is 
wrong (at least for now).

There is also a command to allow big nodes (ie nodes with more (default) 
8 node connections) to continue to connect to your node. The command is 
(for example):

set/maxconnect 30 gb7djk ed7zab-5 pi4tue-8 wr3d db0sue-7

And you only need to use this command if you are one of these "big" 
nodes or one of these "big" nodes connects to you (and *not* if you 
connect to one of them).

It is, I admit, confusing, but I am back here and available to answer
