when use multiprocessing managers, while use socket to communicate between server process and client process, if I used the global socket timeout feature(no matter how large the value is) the client will always say

  File "c:\python27\lib\multiprocessing\", line 149, in Client
    answer_challenge(c, authkey)
  File "c:\python27\lib\multiprocessing\", line 383, in answer_challenge
    message = connection.recv_bytes(256)         # reject large message
IOError: [Errno 10035] 

this is not reasonable, because this behaviour will make subprocess unable to use socket's timeout features globally.

Another question is line 138 in
        # do authentication later
        self.listener = Listener(address=address, backlog=5)
        self.address = self.listener.address

backlog=5 will accept only 5 cocurrent connections, this is not so user friendly, you'd better make this a argument that can be specified by user

hume; filing this again doesn't help. I closed issue 9851 as a duplicate of this for you.

ok, I refill this to fix the un-plesant words problem.

The first problem is a duplicate of issue #6056.

As for the second problem, no, it doesn't limit the number of concurrent connections. Server.serve_forever() creates a new thread for each new incoming connection.

Closing as duplicate.
