Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a system of monitoring cameras. It runs normal with 2 cameras, with the third tied it starts to crash,
What exactly crashes? An application? Your Desktop Environment?

Via what interface are the cameras connected? Are they all the same brand and type? (And which one BTW?) Do they require proprietary drivers?
What do the system logs show when you plug the cameras in? And right before the crash? And what does the crash look like in the logs?
Please be as verbose as possible and please post log excerpts in [code]text here[/code] tags or pastebin them if too large.
I have a program to access the cameras, supports up to 64 devices, cameras, this program is provided by the manufacturer of the cameras.
The cameras are a factory located in germany, I rented a vps, so that the company's founders could access from anywhere without overwhelming the small server germany.
The settings on my vps is:
CentOS 5.8 + VNC + KDE.
Up to 8 processors of 3.5GHz.
Guaranteed 8gb memory can reach up 16gb.
Link 100mbps, I realized that the actual speed of 10mbps.
The application opens the cameras can usually keep up to 3 cameras rolling simultaneously, but when I try to connect the fourth camera it crashes my vps, as if there was a limit of connections tcp / stream simultaneous in VPS.
I wonder how can I break this limit? which file I have to change to be able to access more than three cameras simultaneously on my vps?
I'm sorry but I've asked you very specific questions and you answered one and in a way that does not help me help you. Try harder.

You focus on network connections and say "as if" without providing anything that would support that. If it were a VPS network connection limit then you should
enquire if it were a network connection limit imposed by the VPS hoster, list network-related sysctls and syslog messages (if any), your network device and firewall configuration and output from monitoring network connections before, during and after each camera gets connected.

Also list network-related sysctls and syslog messages (if any), your network device and firewall configuration and output from monitoring network connections before, during and after the application connects to the DVR cameras over IP. Please let us know if you face a language barrier, have reading disability, don't know anything about Linux, if you're incapable of running anything from the command line or whatever else because my ESP is at an all time low and I can not guess what it is that keeps you from posting the information we need to help you.
