A while back we added stations, and had a problem where we met the limit of telnet sessions allowed.   Someone pointed me to some setting I just had to increase to allow more telnet sessions.  

I forgot what that setting is and we are about to expand again.   Any ideas where I can look?

Hi,

could be related to the maximum number of pseudo terminals (ptys).

Check with

smitty chgpty

and increase the maximum number of pseudo terminals if required.

The same can be achieved with

chdev -l pty0 -a ATTnum='nnnn'

with nnnn being the new maximum.

The change will take effect immediately.

If I remember well AIX 5.1 didn't come with the number of licenses set to 32768 by default.

Check with

smitty chlicense

and increase if needed. The AIX license model is no longer based on the number of users, so you can increase it at wish.

The command line option is

chlicense  -u 'nnnn'

with nnnn being the new number of licensed users.
