I meant telnet-sessions simultanously. Of course only port 23 is attached.

I'm using sio2k. sio2k supports 256 'sessions', witch can be telnet, com-
ports or com emulated capi-devices. I've got one big problem with sio2k, I
can't register it any more.

Ahm, i've got a special security configuration, not only because of the
'unclosed session bug' from sio2k

Security by obscurity. ;-)

 TK> Oh?
Jap. If more than 256 connections are opend, and not properly closed, sio2k
does hang up the system.
