increase connection limit on linux



We have ubuntu [url removed, login to view] and our software should create [url removed, login to view] sockets. socket() function returns error (24 - "Too many open files") after 1002 handles. We've tried to increase the limit by following commands:

sysctl -w fs.file-max=100000

ulimit -n 200000

What did we miss?
