Node.js Question

Socket server is running but client can't connect

I have setup a Node.js server with Socket.io using HTTPS:

var express = require('express');
var app = express();

app.use(express.static(__dirname + '/public'));
var https = require('https');
var fs = require('fs');
var options = {
key: fs.readFileSync('commercial.key', 'utf8'),
cert: fs.readFileSync('commercial.crt', 'utf8'),
ca: fs.readFileSync('ca_chain.crt', 'utf8')
var server = https.createServer(options, app);
var io = require('socket.io').listen(server);

app.get('/', function(req, res){
res.sendFile(__dirname + '/index.html');

io.on('connection', function(client){
//console.log('IO Connection');
var socket_id = client.id;

console.log(socket_id + " connected");

After starting this server, it's running fine. Clients can connect to it. But, after a few hours, new clients can't connect but old clients - the clients connected before - can still interact with the server.

I just have about 200 ccu and I checked RAM, CPU of VPS, all are fine. I also checked the log file and no errors founded.

Client Error

Anyone can tell me that the setup of server is true or any problems?


After some days research, I don't know why but when i change the config of file /etc/security/limits like this:

* soft nofile 65535
* hard nofile 65535
root soft nofile 65535
root hard nofile 65535

My server seem to be working well. I posted to anyone that have the problem like me, but if someone have the explanation please help me.
