OpenVMS telnet connections timeout on logon

February 21, 2012 at 04:54:27
Specs: OpenVMS 8.3, Itanium
Telnet logon connection times out on my OpenVMS system after the system has been up a number of days. It works fine up to a point the quits accepting connects with a timeout I suspect it's some system parameter, but have know idea which one it might be.

Please post the error message, and if available, operator console messages.

There might be more telnet sessions active than the limit defined in the telnet service configuration.
Depending on the TCP/IP stack , show the configuration.
If it is "TCPIP services for VMS", then use
TCPIP SHOW SERVICE TELNET /full
Do a "show system" to see all the process, eventually there are 'hanging' telnet sessions.
"show device tna" also list active telnet terminal devices, may give some hints.

It is TCPIP services for OpenVMS. There is a connection Limit of 10000. We are not close to that. I'm still trying to get the console message.
