Cisco devices usually has limited VTY (telnet) session. Generally device has 5 VTY lines (VTY 0 to 4) or you can say there can be 5 concurrent telnet sessions.

check this URL to get more information.

Re: Connecting to Routers remotley

Many devices are designed with 16 now by default (vty 0 - 15), but are split up into 2 groups in the config (0-4 and 5-15) - don't ask me why.

Re: Connecting to Routers remotley

As said in the earlier posts, you can either have 5 or 16 concurrent connections by default depending on the platform.

To answer the 2nd question

It is possible to limit the no of telnet sessions by the following command " no exec"

eg. if your platform supports 5 vty lines and you want to restrict it to 2 then use

line vty 0 1

Password

login

line vty 2 5

no exec

HTH, rate if it does
