Limit the total number of users who can log onto NT Server


You can limit the total number of users who can log onto NT Server with
following hack:

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
Name:
Users
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: Max
users allowed

This may be key Microsoft uses to prevent workstations from servicing more
than 10 simultaneous users. Max setting is ffffffff. My servers would all
support this many simultaneous users (sure). In any case, if you have a
workstation and try to get it to run like a server by twiddling with this value,
I can not guarantee the results. It certainly violates your sw license and I
suspect that there are other keys involved anyway.
