If it's dial-in, why not just have 1 modem?  Or am I missing something?

From steven's link, here they describe "a better way" to limit login sessions (http://www.jsiinc.com/SUBA/tip0200/rh0296.htm).

Ok, moty, we still do not know some information. If you could clarify it would help us to narrow down your possibilities:

1) What is the reasoning behind limiting the connections? Is someone hogging up connectivity of others or do you just want X number of people to be able to log in at a time?

2) Are you trying to stop 1 user from logging in twice, or 2 users logging in at the same time? (It would seem that you want 1 user dialed in at a time.)

3) How many modems are available in the modem pool?

4) How many overall users are allowed to dial in and for what purpose? (You can be vague with the purpose [ie, access to a database, internal web server, etc].)

5) Is this actually Dialup (ie, the user dials a number) or VPN (ie, the users "dials" an IP)?

This information should help us to direct you to plausible solutions.

Although this may be somewhat of a kludge, you can set the dial-up user accounts to callback the user before initiating the connection; or maybe use this restriction only on the callers that appear to be abusing the dial-up privileges.

In the User's Properties, Dial-in tab, Callback section, set the option to Always callback to and put in the phone number from which they make the remote connection.

In so doing, if user Joe calls in from 111-222-3333, the server calls back at 111-222-3333 to initiate the connection. If Joe tries to use a second call, from 333-222-1111 for instance, it will try to callback at 111-222-3333 and, therefore, the callback would fail and the user cannot login.

Other than some sort of workaround, I do not see anything in the RAS or User options to restrict them from loggin in only once.

You may want to see if your RADIUS server has options for restricting access based off of currently logged-in users.

I am not sure if your RADIUS implementation is compatible, however there is an example (http://www.gnu.org/software/radius/manual/html_chapter/radius_8.html#SEC57) showing a User Profile that includes the attribute "Simultaneous-Use=1". See (http://www.gnu.org/software/radius/manual/html_chapter/radius_9.html#SEC80) for more information.

"When a user with limited number of simultaneous logins authenticates himself, Radius first counts the number of the sessions that are already opened by this user. If this number is equal to the value of Simultaneous-Use attribute the authentication request is rejected."
