This mod disallows multiple logins using the same user ID from different locations if switched on.

How to install:
- Apply the mod
- Upload the changed files (LogInOut.pl,AdminEdit.pl,english.lng).
- Switch it on or off in Admin Board Preferences.

And it should work Wink

Yes, I don't think that part of the code is changed.

In SP2 the approach is different and allthough a "power" user can be logged in twice from different locations, only the one holding a validated session has the admin/gmod powers, the other one has no powers whatsoever (even less then a regged user) and can only post (not even edit or delete his own messages).

I will see if this needs to be in too.

Thanx for this mod Ron@Spikecity.

Your amongst a few that can't get it running Grin
And as for the help, remember that it is a BETA version still undergoing major changes every hour, so unless it becomes an RC we will have a manual to install (with all the correct chmods) and our support team to get you on the road.
In the meantime SP2 comes unsupported and "as is".

You're most welcome, and there is more where this came from (a lot based on SP2 technology).
Just watch the beta board Grin

Hi Ron,

I've got a little problem on my forum. Two of my members, both using AOL, are having trouble logging in with the new mod installed. The mod is telling them that they are already logged in on another computer, which I assume is because of AOL's proxy servers. Any suggestions?

Basically that is possible as I look for IP addresses but only on user login id so if they get the error that they are already logged in (or are still in the online log as they did not log out properly but just closed their browser) from another computer that is possible in two manners:

1. there is indeed someone else logged in using their account (unlikely)

2. they don't log out from your board so they stay in the online log for the x minutes set in the Board Preferences (default 15 minutes)
If they then try to log in using AOL within the time span the online log keeps them in they get a different IP address every time and are recognised as duplicates.
You can clean the online log from the admin center to give them instant access without waiting for them to fall of the list (15 min) but the correct way is to have them log out.

This is true for all dialup and AOL users (who change IP between sessions)
