Watchdog for Unix....?

Post by Gawie Herbs » Sat, 12 Apr 1997 04:00:00



I have users logging in to a SCO machine.  If they disconnect their
accounts are still open and then they cannot log in again. Is there
something like a watchdog for Unix to solve the problem . IF NOT is there
something else that could help solve the problem.

                        Thank you in advance,
                                        Gawie

Can't you simply use Idleout to get rid of them once they are idle
for some time?  Check it out: man idleout
