HP-UX logins

I am using Century Term Professional to login to a HP-UX 700 series machine from a Windows NT on a PC  via a serial connection.  Other terminals are connected to the UNIX side via coax net.  After configuring the Term software and making the proper serial connection, I can get a login prompt but when trying to login, I get the message "Sorry, there are too many login connections" or a message to that effect.  Ther are only three or four users loging in though pseudo ttys are being used.  There is no such small user limitation on the UX OS.  Others can login at other terminals (coax) when I can't through Term.  Funny thing is, when I log a couple of users off, I can then login through Term with no subsequent problem.  I haven't had to support UNIX in quite a long time.  I must be missing something.  What's going on?  Thanks

If you do 'uname -a' you will see the license you have. If it says 2-user license, it means -afaik- that only two users can use -serial- connections. Network connections are not counted.

Didn't know the user limitation applied only to serial connections.  Thanks, Elfie.  That has to be the answer.
