Limiting simultaneous logins on Individual Subscriptions

Postby phil » Thu Aug 30, 2012 1:54 pm

Dear Folks;

Is it possible to limit the number of simultaneous logins against an Individual Subscriber account?

If yes, how is this done.

Thanks very much.

Hi Phil,

If you take a look at your OJS file (in the root of your OJS directory) you will find an option to invalidate user sessions if a user's IP address changes (this setting is intended as a general security measure for user sessions).

Code: Select all

; This check will invalidate a session if the user's IP address changes.
; Enabling this option provides some amount of additional security, but may
; cause problems for users behind a proxy farm (e.g., AOL).
session_check_ip = Off
