    Re: Remote access

    Since Linux, like all Unix derivatives, is inherently multi-user, I doubt this is possible. Also most of us who manage systems remotely do so in text-mode via SSH. In that situation there is no "remote desktop" to lock down.

    Maybe one of the remote access clients like NX or VNC allow this, but it would only apply to your session. There's nothing to stop someone logging in from the keyboard and starting another session in parallel with yours.
    If you ask for help, please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    you can (without root) anticipate the login from normal users via "pam_nologin".
    --> man pam_login
