When you connect to an Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 Web site, the following error message may occur:

Access Forbidden: Too many users are connected


This error is displayed when the number of users connected to the server exceeds the connection limit set by the administrator of the Web server.


To correct this problem, have the administrator change the connection limit settings for the Web site.
  1. Open Internet Services Manager.
  2. Right-click the Web site and choose Properties.
  3. On the Web Site property page, select Connections.
  4. Choose Unlimited or increase the Limited To: value.
