I think you meant port 2201.
And, this will only work, of course if there is a firewall between the
client and the server.
But the question about how much a server can handle is bound by the
bandwidth and disk speed, not by processor speed, unless you're talking
about a really slow machine (by today's standards).

Actually it's a 32-bit number, so you have 4294967296 possible accounts.
