    Restricting User Logons

    I want to restrict user logons to one connection only per user.

    Do I need to write a script for this or can I enforce it via AD?

    You really need LimitLogon.

    There are numerous threads if you search, including this one:
    Limit Logon

    LimitLogin is incredibly cumbersome to deploy and administer.
    It:
    - performs an irreversible Active Directory schema modification
    - requires an IIS server
    - does not come with an integrated deployer
    - does not support Windows NT 4.0 domains
    - does not provide E-mail and popup notifications
    - does not log lock/unlock events
    - does not allow to define login limits by group
    - does not allow to customize messages displayed to users
    - does not allow to set workstation restrictions
    - ...

    As an American friend of mine once told me: “LimitLogin looks like a Rube Goldberg’s machine”



    You should have a look at UserLock.

    If he wants something simple, paying £2.50 per licence might be abit much.

    Although if you have the cash, userlock is a quality bit of software.

    True - but it is free and (at least for us) does work
