Configuring allowed client types
You can define the types of clients that can connect to the IBM
Sametime Community Server.
Configuring the single login type
The single login type
mode means that only one login per user is allowed. When a client attempts to log in to the IBM
Sametime Community Server, the server checks to see if there are any existing logins of the same user, and disconnects them. Any client on the exclusion list is not disconnected, which is useful for users who want to run multiple clients simultaneously.
Configuring the preferred login list
If a user is already connected to the IBM Sametime
Community Server through several different clients, and another user attempts to initiate an instant messaging session with the logged-in user, Sametime
uses a default login order to determine which client type should receive the instant messaging session. A preferred login list allows you to override the default order.
