    Question Fully logout from SAMBA from windows environment

    hello all

    i've recently configured a small samba server in my office network

    everything is working well

    the thing is, there is one computer that anyone can use, when they are in a rush.

    i want to be able to have anyone log in and logout from that computer with their normal user account

    say john logs in the samba server from pc1, when john finished working, how can bob log in on the same pc1 without restarting the pc?

    is there an easy way to do this?

    the only solution i found, was to restart the pc, but thats not a pratical solution

    any ideias?

    many thanks

    is the server a domain controller? if it is you can simply add the pc to the domain, then log in and out of it as normal

    no, its not in any domain.

    Looking through options on webmin, I saw under Unix Networking there was an option that said "Idle time before disconnect". Perhaps you could disconnect idle users (say after 10 minutes or so? I'll keep looking around as I've also wondered about this.
