Yeah, but if max-clients = 5, and clients = 5, nothing would change
when I reboot to Windows and it works. Also, if it's working on Linux,
I reboot my machine, and then I cannot connect again. Plus, I
disconnect my phone, I try to connect in Linux, it keeps failing, I
connect my phone, and my phone works.

I don't think this theory matches the evidence at all.
