Multiple connections per user RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any way to allow only 1 person to be connected from 1 computer at a time?

    Right now you can log into communicator from at least 5 computers, and a lot of people end up missing messages because they go to another computer.

    I'm thinking something like AIM where you log in and it says you are already logged in, press 1 to disconnect, or something like that.  Or maybe the most recent connection trumps all others, i dont know.  What features are built in?

    Thank you

  • Open the OCS admin tools.

    Go to the forest level - right click - properties - user tab.

    Set your maximum devices per user.  That is a forest wide change.  The default out of the box is 6.

    That setting only changes how many connections the server will keep presence information for from the reading i have done (i had played with that previously).  It won't limit you from connecting.  In that event, which user would be the one it would be keeping track of? (mine was default of 8 actually)

     

    Thank you!
