TCP ports don't get used up on servers when you have lots of connections.

the limit is that you cannot duplicate the set
source IP
source port
destination IP
destination port
in about a 2 min period

when connecting to a server the destination port and destination IP are fixed, so a client can make lots of connections and make it so that no other connections could be made from that source IP, but that doesn't hurt anyone else.

that also isn't the attack that's happening here.
