Edit the variable
MaxConnectionsIPfrom the default number to a suitable value for your environment under both tables.Note: The safe limit, according to our Infrastructure and Development teams, is 600. But the value might be smaller depending on your Company Infrastructure.
Save the changes and start Kerio Connect.
