there is no (direct) connection between erlang ports and sockets. 
changing ERL_MAX_PORT will not help you with a *enfile* error in socket 

    EPO guidelines 1978: "If the contribution to the known art resides
    solely in a computer program then the subject matter is not
    patentable in whatever manner it may be presented in the claims."
