        '(' + server.connections, '/', server.maxConnections + ')');

    wsocket.on('data', function(data, isBinary) {
        console.log('Recieved:', data.length > 64 ? data.length + ' bytes' : data);
        wsocket.send(data);
    });

    wsocket.on('close', function() {
        console.log('wsocket closed', 
            '(' + server.connections, '/', server.maxConnections + ')');
    });

    wsocket.on('error', function(ex) {
        console.error('wsocket error:', ex);
        throw ex;

    console.log('Recieved:', data.length > 64 ? data.length + ' bytes' : data);
