max ssh connection

where in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config i can find the maximum number of ssh connection?

bash-2.03# uname -a
SunOS <server name> 5.8 Generic_117000-05 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-280R

I didn't think Solaris 8 came with SSH?

In which case you may be running OpenSSH and you should be looking in /usr/local/etc/sshd_config.

Looking at the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file on my OpenSolaris install I see no parameter that looks like it would do what you want.

I think TonyFullerMalv is right Solaris 8 didn't came with SSH but if you have that file and you have the SSH daemon running. You may see the man file of sshd_config and look for "MaxStartups"

It's in that file on my system (albeit a non-standard Solaris build: SunOS 5.11 NexentaOS_20080312 i86pc i386 i86pc Solaris)

# The maximum number of concurrent unauthenticated connections to sshd.
# start:rate:full see sshd(1) for more information.
# The default is 10 unauthenticated clients.
#MaxStartups 10:30:60
