Sets the maximum number of connections for each user account. The maximum number of ISAM and SQL connections can be set separately using MAX_ISAM_CONNECTIONS and MAX_SQL_CONNECTIONS respectively.

If a user is in a group, the connections are counted at the group level. If the user is not part of a group, connections are counted for the individual user.

Note: If limits are set in the license file, the configuration option can only be used to further reduce the connection limits (they cannot be increased above the license file limits).

The error code ALMT_ERR (984) is returned when logon is denied because the number of distinct user accounts that are allowed to be connected at one time has been reached.
