Cisco IOS Software only allows a limited number of Telnet sessions. The router could already be at its capacity for Telnet sessions or could not be configured to accept any Telnet sessions.
To resolve this issue, perform these steps:
Tty Typ Tx/Rx A Modem Roty AccO AccI Uses Noise Overruns Int

70 VTY - - - - - 0 0 0/0 -
The VTY lines with asterisks are in use. Two VTY lines are in use, and three others are available.
You must specify an incoming transport protocol or specify the transport input all command before the line accepts incoming connections.
If you are using your router as a terminal server to make console-port connections to routers or other devices, you will not be able to use Telnet to connect to these devices.
For more information about the transport input all command, refer to the transport input section of translate lat.
