limitation really only applies to programs listening for a connection.
That is, you can't have more than 64k different listening sockets at
You're incorrect. In order to open a socket connection you need a source port and a destination port. So you as a client open a port in your 65535 ports (usually an arbitrarily high number) for receiving communication from the server. TCP multiplexing is still involved with receiving server communication on a client. Short answer is yes you're limited by the combination of listening sockets and receive ports for data from server to client communications.
