    I don't believe that we have anything in TCPware to limit it.
    You might be able to limit it by setting MAXJOBS to 1 in the user authorization for GUEST.

    Subject: [TCPware V5.7-2] (Anon) FTP session limit ?


    Is there a way to limit (Anonymous) FTP sessions with TCPware?

    Background: I've a FTP server and a xDSL link at home, and if someone
    accesses my server the bandwidth of my downloads are noticeable reduced.
    And if more than 1 file is uploaded (for me, downloaded for the friend)
    then not only I'm really unhappy with the performance (of my internet link),
    but also these downloads can't complete (cause of my upload bandwidth)
    before I (have to) shutdown the server at night (and the transfer/s is/are
    aborted and because of no TCPware FTP server REGET feature the bandwidth
    was totally wasted for both/all of us).

    So, I'd like to have only one (anonymous) FTP session allowed to avoid this.
    Is this possible?

    At best it should be possible to limit only anonymous FTP sessions, while
    non-anonymous FTP sessions (myself, not using the internet link) won't
    get affected.

    Any hints? (and yes, I'll RTFM tomorrow)

    TIA

    Sad to hear/read.

    Not really. Because the first four network jobs are not counted by /MAXJOBS
    I can only limit it to 5 (4+1 if /MAXJOBS=1) or more, but not to only 1.
    Unfortunately can't set /MAXJOBS=-3 ;-) btw: User is ANONYMOUS (not GUEST).

    Nevertheless thanks
