servers is the same as sessions.

I think the request was to limit the number of active FTP sessions and not simply the number of servers. I looked in the documentation and I, too, can't find any way to limit the number of sessions. I'd be happy to know if someone is aware of some way to do this, but I believe we had an answer from someone as Process already who said it's not (currently) in the product.

You could put the following in TCPWARE:FTP.CONF:


This will limit the total number of servers to 1, no matter who they are.
This may be what you really want.
