CSS No default telnet timeout??

Seems I've locked myself out of a remote CSS. I had a few sessions get interrupted and now...

>telnet x.x.x.x

Telnet Lines Full. Please try again later.

Connection to host lost.

Why would default be no timeout, that's just stupid. Of course I tried the http gui but of course that uses telnet as well. Any ideas how to get back in without reboot?

Use console access to see the active lines

CSS# show lines

and kill the lines using

CSS# disconnect vty

USe

CSS(config)# idle timeout

to set idle timeout in minutes.

Thanks syed, unfortunately this is at a remote location. I got the unit rebooted and added the idle timeout for the future.
