On Netware servers, you can toggle this behaviour with


(and you better not turn that off for *all* servers). If lwared doesn't  
yet have such an option (I don't know either way), it should get it. It  
should be configurable which servers act as login servers.

On the other hand, this is *exactly* what Novell servers do - "not logged  
in" connections (read-only access to the SYS:LOGIN directory *only*) count  
to the limit.

This doesn't matter if you can get at LOGIN.EXE without getting at the  
server first.
