Default Multiple browser instances

How to find out that a user is running more than one instance of a browser on the same machine?

This is necessary as the user will try to access same application with two different login names and the in-memory cookies may get shared by both these instances which we want to avoid.

Is getting an IP address of the machine will solve the problem?

Regards,

Dilip Nagle

Not aware of a way, cant think of why you would want to.

I use Use Session, or transient cookies and tend to steer clear of Permanent, persistent, or stored cookies. The only reason I would use the later is to offer the 'check this box to remember your username on next visit'

Get them to log in using information validated against a UN and PW stored in a database, then you have complete control.

No multiple browsers on the same machine use the same IP address
