comment Hundreds of connections to a server, just from opening 10+ tabs in IE8?
I chose to Accept this answer as it's the one that really helped solve the problem. I updated the server so that static content properly gets Cache-Control and Expires headers. It looks like IE is respecting them by not requesting those files again so quickly, which would decrease the number of connections. The customer reported that the problem appears to have gone away.

The CDN idea sounds sensible. I'll have to look into that.

Well-said. We might have to switch hosts.

Well, the host is sticking to the theory that something's wrong with the guy's computer, so they won't do any kind of whitelisting. We're only pointing one hostname at that server - a subdomain meant specifically for the forums. As for alternate browsers, it turns out that Chrome (or Firefox, but I think it was Chrome) has the same issue. But Opera seems to be fine (likely because of its aggressive caching).

Going by things they've said previously on support tickets, I think it's around 200.
