Guys,
Let say I have user A, who currently is logged in on Computer A. Then while
still being logged in on computer A he goes and login on Computer B and
while login on A & B he now goes and login on C. Is there a way I can limit
the number of concurrent logons?

Hi,
Be aware that even using the tools mentioned before by Richard, there's no
way to guarantee that 100% unless you force the authentication process to
connect to a DC each time a user logs on (or disabling local user cache
logon) which can have negative impact in performance and mobile users.

I hope that the information above helps you.
Have a Nice day.
