Maximum number of clients exceeded

How do I get rid of this problem?

A. Many ftp servers are configured to allow 1 or 2 maximum login only. There are couple of ftp client program which open up multiple connections to the FTP server to speed up download or upload.

To avoid denial of service (DoS) attack against the ftp server, most admin restrict ftp client opening multiple connections.

All you need to do is turn off multiple connection feature (look for server supports resume check box) from your ftp client or ask your ftp server administrators to increase your limit.
