Server 2012, How do I increase the Max client connections currently set to 21. I do not see anything in "routing and remote access" that sets a limit. However if I go into server manager under VPN dashboard  I see maximum client connections = 21

Try here....

Using Terminal Services Configuration

    Open Terminal Services Configuration.

    In the console tree, click Connections.

    In the details pane, right-click the connection for which you want to specify a maximum number of sessions, and then click Properties.

    On the Network Adapter tab, click Maximum connections, type the maximum number of sessions that can connect to the server, and then click Apply.

I found this for 2008, I do not know if this will work for you but its worth a try. :)

 Start > Administrative Tools > Routing & Remote Access > Expand Server Name > Ports > RIght Click > Properties.

Increase them in here, then restart the service by Right Click Server Name > All Tasks > Restart

I looked at that, I have plenty of inactive ports (127) available. I may have found it, does this sound like it might have been the problem. I have RARS setup to use DHCP not a pool. however my DHCP scope was full. I increased the scope and I went from 21 to 23 max connections. Unfortunately the shift has changed now and my usage has dropped so I'm not seeing the problem

That definitely sounds like the issue. Can you setup a pool just for the VPN?
