More detail:

Look in /proc/net/ip_conntrack. Most likely you'll see lots of
connects in TIME_WAIT.

You can adjust the maximum number of tracked connections by echoing to
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_max. A better solution, however, is
probably to modify the individual timeout values for each state. For

 echo "5" >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_conntrack_tcp_timeout_time_wait

[disclaimer: I haven't tried this myself, but google + src indicates
 this is the most promising approach.]
