SSH port forward - one fails to listen


I have a single SSH gateway setup to receive port forward requests
from other clients. Each client can establish up to 3 different
forwards like this:

Client 1:
/usr/bin/autossh -M 0 -N -p 443 -o ServerAliveInterval=20 -R user1@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
/usr/bin/autossh -M 0 -N -p 443 -o ServerAliveInterval=20 -R user1@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Client 2:
/usr/bin/autossh -M 0 -N -p 443 -o ServerAliveInterval=20 -R user2@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
/usr/bin/autossh -M 0 -N -p 443 -o ServerAliveInterval=20 -R user2@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Client 3:
/usr/bin/autossh -M 0 -N -p 443 -o ServerAliveInterval=20 -R user3@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
/usr/bin/autossh -M 0 -N -p 443 -o ServerAliveInterval=20 -R user3@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The first first two customers worked fine, the third is giving me this
error when setting up the second tunnel for port 1033:

Jun 30 13:06:44 server sshd[1500]: Accepted publickey for user3 from
external.ip port 12239 ssh2
Jun 30 13:06:44 server sshd[1500]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session
opened for user user3 by (uid=0)
Jun 30 13:06:44 server sshd[1502]: error: bind: Cannot assign requested address
Jun 30 13:06:44 server sshd[1502]: error: channel_setup_fwd_listener:
cannot listen to port: 1033
Jun 30 13:08:00 server sshd[1502]: Received disconnect from
external.ip: 11: disconnected by user
Jun 30 13:08:00 server sshd[1500]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session
closed for user user3

The IP is on the box and port 1032 is working fine. Is there a max
number of forwards that needs to be tweaked or something like that?
