    Dim PubPoint As IWMSPublishingPoint
    Dim Limits As IWMSPublishingPointLimits
    Dim iValue As Integer

    ' Create the WMSServer object.
    Server = New WMSServer()

    ' Retrieve the IWMSPublishingPoints object.
    PubPoints = Server.PublishingPoints

    ' Retrieve information about each publishing point.
    For Each PubPoint In PubPoints

        ' Retrieve the IWMSPublishingPointLimits
        ' object for the publishing point.
        Limits = PubPoint.Limits
        ' Retrieve the bandwidth limit allowed for each
        ' client connection.
        iValue = Limits.PerPlayerConnectionBandwidth
        ' Set the bandwidth limit allowed for each client connection.
        Limits.PerPlayerConnectionBandwidth = 128
