I have a unmanaged VPS with a provider in US. When I try to connect the server via FTP it throws error.

Response: 421 Too many connections (8) from this IP

Can somebody shed some light ?

It looks like you have reached a threshold set on the max number of clients per IP for FTP. By default it is set to 8. Increase it to the limit you want in /etc/pure-ftpd.conf file. Find for MaxClientsPerIP & raise the limit. Restart FTP service & you will be able to access the account via FTP.
