Each Emerald client requires two DB Connections, and a temp third
when you print. Each RadiusNT server takes two connections as well.
Each Enterprise Manager, Isql_w, etc can take one or more connections.

So if you have two RadiusNT servers, three Emerald clients, and one
Enterprise manager open, that can be 12 connections right off the
bat. SQL Executive typically will take two connections as well.
Opps, only one left... :(
