      or limitlogon

      LimitLogin capabilities include:
      •Limiting the number of logins per user from any machine in the domain, including Terminal Server sessions.
      •Displaying the logins information of any user in the domain according to a specific criterion (e.g. all the logged-on sessions to a specific client machine or Domain Controller, or all the machines a certain user is currently logged on to).
      •Easy management and configuration by integrating to the Active Directory MMC snap-ins.
      •Ability to delete and log off user session remotely straight from the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in.
      •Generating Login information reports in CSV (Excel) and XML formats.
      Please keep in mind that this tool is Not Supported (similar to a resource kit or support tool).

          Denying interactive logon will stop a user logging on completely, regardless of whether they are logged on elsewhere. With Windows 2000 & 2003 you can't stop multiple logons out of the box. You need to add either a third party tool (such as userlock) or the microsoft offerings of limitlogon.
