You may only have 10 liscenses on the server. Use control panel - liscense manager to increase.

I missed that. NTWK only has a maximum of 10 inbound connections. This is not configurable. The only option is to set up a server.

Tcalesa is correct - there is no legal way to increase the number above 10.

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
