"There are too many people accessing the Web site at this time.<"

I'm using Windows XP Professional with IIS as a web server and I'm developing an application using ASP.

Occasionally I start getting this error when submitting forms and I don't know why:
"The page cannot be displayed
There are too many people accessing the Web site at this time.<"

It seemed intermittent, and now I can't submit any form at all.
I am the only one connecting to my site.

Can anybody tell me why this might be happening and what I can do to prevent it?

Thanks

Problem is not how many clients are connecting, but how many connections are made by the clients! Each picture will open a connection, only limitet by the browsers setting or system setting. Normally IE6 will open 4 parallel connections I think and IIS on Win2k/XP Prof. can handle up to 3 connections I think. However the correct limitations are, Win2k/XP Prof. are limited to a certain number of connections.

There's a 10 connections limit on XP Pro.  It could easily happen with one browser windows. Each object in page (eg. css style sheet file, image file, external javascript) makes new connection to the server.

You need to disable HTTP Keep-Alive Enabled in WebSite tab under the properties of Default Website.
