I was publishing to host server and got a socket error on one of the dlls.  After that, publish quit working with the following error any time I try to validate connection or publish: The maximum number of connections for this site has been exceeded.

The MS link doesn't even discuss that error.  I've googled until my fingers are about to bleed, web host has not fixed (its been 3 days), I've asked in several forums.  I've tried everything I can think of, I've deleted everything (folders & website from Website Panel), I've deleted temp app pool files from local inetpub, and using an entirely different solution.  I am able still able to publish other solutions to different domains. 

Is this a problem with Visual Studio that I can fix locally or is this something my host has to fix.  In either case, does anyone know how to fix this?

I'm trying to involve some other engineers into this issue and it will take some time. Your patience will be greatly appreciated.

We will let you know if any progress is made.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Best regards,
