Connection per user


Our user using xterm to connect to out host.
How to limit the number of connection per user connecting to our host?

Old 01-17-2008
The only way I see:
Add in /etc/profile : # this will disallow more than 2 connections...

NO=`who -R |grep $LOGNAME|wc -l`
if [ $NO -ge 2 ]
echo "2 connections maximum allowed"
exit 1

# You can try and put it in the .profile of the user but then siice he is the owner, he can always remove what you insert... no easy solution...

best regards
