Are you using the Guardian? if so, get rid of it.

For the connection limiting side of the problem, check whether the server's TCP/IP or firewall settings have limits set for incoming connections. (Windows limits are often "invisible" because of defaults that you can only change by adding the key in the Registry. Try searching MSDN with a phrase like "tcp/ip connection limit".)
