Custom User Authentication Plugin


We would like a custom plugin written to authenticate through connect.password file.

We would like the user to be limited to X number of connections on a server farm-wide basis. So if 10 servers around the world, can only connect X times between all servers, otherwise rejected. So some sort of centralized DB of who’s connected etc…

All servers are Linux based, and no hard time frame, but don’t forsee it taking that long.



I can help you with the custom plugin; please contact me on Skype (karelboek) or by email

Kind Regards

centralized DB is ok for 10 servers even under high load :slight_smile:

I prefer “keep it simple” ways.

centralized DB could become a bottleneck in case of multiple servers under high load, so it should be something more scalable. Please, contact me so we can discuss the project in details.
