Actually the idea of allowing simultaneous access with one user account
is not as bad as it sounds. I have not been able to find an ISP global
or otherwise that allows for this functionality.
Here is the scenario:

I am implementing PPTP for all of my dialup users however I don't want
to buy all of my users 1500+ an individual account. I would rather start
out with a fixed number of accounts to be able to login to the ISP with
a single account. The ISP can charge me as though I have 100 accounts
or whatever number I decide on. I also would like to have some
"overdraft" coverage in there like +10 connections for when there are an
abnormally high number of users traveling.

If this could be monitored to tell me how many calls on the average the
ISP is recieving on this account. Depending on what the outcome is, I
can adjust my account login limit accordingly.

I have talked with many an ISP and they all seem to tell me the same
My billing software does not allow for that.

Hi Dale,

I have been following several threads in various lists regarding
concurrent logon control. RadiusNT does an excellent joj of controlling

The one feature that is very often mentioned that seems to be an
idea, for several reasons, including selling more dialin accounts to
commercial entities using one dialin for all employees, is the ability
send an email to the offending account explaining that the logon was
rejected due to the fact that the username is already logged on.

Might there be a way to get RadiusNT to have this option in a not too
distant release?
