IIS by itself has a property per site, in the tab web site, you could configure the maximum number of connections.
Don't know if that what you are looking for, but I hope it helps.

IIS cannot limit the number of connection for a particular user.  Since that user is stored in your DB.  What you can do is extend your tables to have the following fields:

Existing fields:


Extend with:

SessionID (set this to a GUID when they login and clear it when they logout)

Then when another user logs in, it will clear out the existing sessionID.  If you check for that sessionID on each page and redirect to the login page when the two do not match you have effectively limited it to one user on session.
