i would start with google, look up the "how to ask smart questions"

and if you founded it and read it come back to the list.

but from the level of details you gave i presume you are a newbie linux
administrator and founded the 1024 limitation in linux.

to get over it modify the limits.conf in /etc/security/ and I presume you
are using ubuntu so modify the /etc/pam.d/login and include the with full path
