Subject Re: How to stop other user from connecting If one user is already using the Remote computer
Date Wed, 26 Jul 2017 12:00:31 GMT
Thank you for your answer,

Even if I limit the connection per user I think it only works for that
connection configuration(I have multiple configurations for a single remote
computer). If I have two configurations for a single Remote computer with
the different initial program it will still log out the other user on
