Node.js Question

How to limit my node.js client connections to 2?

I am basically trying to only allow 2 clients to connect to the app concurrently. How should I approach this?

This is my server code:

var express = require('express'),
app = express(),
server = require('http').createServer(app),
io = require('socket.io').listen(server);

var osc = require('node-osc');

var client = new osc.Client('', 12345);


app.get('/', function(req, res){

res.sendfile(__dirname + '/index.html');

io.sockets.on('connection', function(socket){
socket.on('send message', function(data){
client.send('/oscAddress', parseInt(data));


You can try with

server.maxConnections = 2;

Never used it but is looks like it's the way to go if I trust the Node.js documentation
