    Hello, i enabled ssh proxy on server using this tutorial (internetlifeforum com/linux-forums/1326-fastest-way-make-linux-socks-proxy/) and after around hour very roughly i started getting these messages in terminal.


    It was like a flood so i was unable to enter any command. :) So from VPS host server i did "pkill -f mysshporthere" and it stopped

    So i want to ask where i can increase this open files limit value, or what do you recommend doing when this flood happen again? thx

    the ulimit command may help.
    Code:
    ulimit -a
    To be specific:
    Code:
    ulimit -n INSERT_NUMBER_HERE
