Got this message from a tester on my forum "Having trouble accessing the forum.  It's telling me that there are too many IP addresses trying to login."

 

Is there a way to increase the number of allowed IP addresses?  Is this a server problem, or a Simple Press problem? I don't know what the exact error is, and she can't remember.  I haven't seen the error before.

That is not a simple press issue...

My guess is its your apache (or other web server) setup...  they have configuration options for limiting the number of simultaneous connections...

or it could be a plugin for wp...  I think the S2Members plugin has some limit like that...
