Is it possible to organize multiple remote DOS sessions on DOSEMU (Ubuntu)? How administrator can control these sessions?

what do you mean by 'remote DOS sessions?' I found out that DOSEMU works quite fine over X11 SSH forwarding, but perhaps that's not what you want.

qdot@nightfly ~ $ ssh -X localhost
Warning: untrusted X11 forwarding setup failed: xauth key data not generated
Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding.

qdot@nightfly ~ $ dosemu
ERROR: MFS: couldn't find root path /media/CDROM

You can create a user that runs dosemu as part of the login process. You can then actually make that user's home directory read only for such a user, and employ SSH public keys to manage automated access..

You have multiple DOSEMU sessions by using Screen. After starting Screen, use Ctrl-A Ctrl-C to start a 2nd screen for the 2nd DOSEMU session. Ctrl-A Ctrl-A can then be used to toggle between the two DOSEMU sessions. Of course you can add more DOSEMU sessions by adding more Screen sessions with Ctrl-A Ctrl-C.
