Samba Max Connections Problem?


I've got a samba machine that I can't access, it gives the following error:

No more connections can be made to this remote computer at this time because
there are already as many connections as the computer can accept.

I am familiar with samba and the smb.conf having used it for some years. I have only ever seen this error come out of a windows file sharing box, not a linux one!

The service is working, there are a lot of clients connected (probably not more than 10-20 at the moment) but I can't see why this is happening. I've gone through the smb.conf and there is no statement regarding the max number of connections it can take.

Can anyone help?
