My client has sold a 30-user license of a Notes/Domino-based system and wants to make sure his customer doesn’t cheat--anybody have a good solution?

Thanks in advance. Please cc: me on any response--Moore@alumni.Princeton.edu

There is no way to "Limit" the number of ID's that can be created in a Lotus Notes system.  But, If the customer is running R5, and the application is web based, session based authenication can be used to to limit the number of concurrent sessions.

If the applications are Notes based, Another alternative is to have your client set-up and maintain the system for the customer and withhold the cert.id password from the customer.  Your client could then create the IDs for the customer and make sure that the customer never exceeds 30 user ids.  Without the cert id password, you cannot create new user ids.

Good luck.
