       ****From Windows 2000 Resouce Help Kit****

Cconnect.exe: Con-Current Connection Limiter
This tool provides a method of tracking concurrent connections of users and monitoring what computers users are logged on to a network. It consists of two components, a client and an administrator.

Con-Current Connection Limiter:

  a.. is completely hidden from the end user's view.
  b.. keeps track of all computers that users are logged onto.
  c.. tracks last known user of the computer.
  d.. monitors what logon server users are logging into.
  e.. allows concurrent connection limitations to be set on a per-user or
per-group basis.
  f.. stores all information in a Microsoft? SQL ServerT database assigned
by the Administrator.
These tools require:

  a.. Microsoft? Windows? 2000
  - Or -

  b.. Microsoft? Windows NT? version 4.0 with:
    a.. Service Pack 4 or higher
    b.. Windows Script Host
    c.. Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
    d.. MDAC version 2 or higher
  a.. SQL Server 6.5 or higher
Before running the VBS files, CConnect Client must be run successfully at least once to properly set up the database. Otherwise the VBS scripts will fail.

Files Required

Con-Current Connection Limiter is not installed by the Windows 2000 Resource Kit setup program. The files required for this tool are located on the
Apps\Cconnect\ folder of the Resource Kit companion CD.

Before using CConnect Client or CConnect Administrator, you must first install them using the installation programs (Setup.exe) located in the
Apps\Cconnect\Client and Apps\Cconnect\Admin folders.


Great cut and paste job from the resource kit help!!
