By adding channels, does that help increase the client base?

Does increasing the throttle help?

Does allowing more users per channel help?

We get 40-50 users and then it refuses anymore connections
and won't allow any access to the Admin area.

We're kind of baffled on how to allow more.

Thanks in advance for your help.
