AIX Remote Connect Fail With “No more multiple IP addresses to connect” Error

We have a production server at a client site running AIX. And recently when users are trying to connect to it via telnet, it prompts "No more multiple IP addresses to connect".

Can I know what does this error mean? and how to rectify this?

Sounds like a configuration problem or hitting some limit. A bit more info would be nice like:
ifconfig -a
netstat -r
netstat -i

Did you do any configuration changes before the error showed up? Besides the problem, isn't ssh an option? telnet is not a tad secure.

When posting the output of the commands above, be so kind and use [code] and [/code] tags to enhance readability etc. thanks.
