I'm looking for a tool like Find from Netware, which is able  on a schedule base to clear an active connection when no files are open and for a specific account.
I'm looking mainly for something for Netware 3.12

Have you thought about using time restrictions via NWAdmin for this account?

It could be a good idea. But in fact I'm using an application which use an account to log in to the server but never clears the connection after. I can't use NetAdmin for that, because the time the appli needs to have a connection can change a lot. I'm more looking for something base on open files.
Thanks for your answer

The answer you accepted does not fit the question.  Time restrictions does not check for open files, it clears the connection when the time set is reached closing any open files.
Netadmin is not a 3.12 utility, that would be syscon.

JSTEGALL - I guess I have to retract my correction.  You are absolutely correct - I don't know what I was thinking.  SYSCON is most certainly the tool I meant to refer to.  I apologize for the invalidity.

You have to do something when you get the warning about automatic grading of an answer.  If
you don't reject it you will accept it without doing anything.  You may be able to go to Customer
Service and get them to reopen it since the answer is not acceptable, or even correct.

If you don't reject an answer and no comments are added to a question, it is auto-graded after a period of inactivity.  That sounds like what probably happened on this question.  In the future make sure that the expert who helped you has the proposed answer, then grade the question.

jstegall,
I'll post a question in this topic area to award you points for your answer.
