Don't know exactly what you're doing, but you likely see connection
errors (no free client slots) if you try to connect with more
connections than can be served.

remote.get() works as if you're doing and bat.insert(), but
slightly more optimised, using a binary transport if possible.  The
limits here are defined by the system.
