assuming you are running from xinetd, you should be able to up the instances
in xinetd.conf.  I can't remember if telnetd has it's own setting though.
If so, it should be in xinetd.d.  Been a while since I ran telnet at all...

Subject: telnet connections

Hi all,

    I received this message in my log after opening multiple sessions.

Deactivating service telnet due to excessive incoming connections.
Restarting in 30 seconds

Is there any way to view or modify the number of connections somewhere
on the system?
