Any number from 0 to 0x7FFFFFFF cand be set where 0 means unlimited number of shells. If you enable this policy setting the user cannot open new remote shells if the count exceeds the specified limit. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting by default the limit is set to two remote shells per user.
