    No, you cannot do this, i.e., you do not have control over the connection. Note that Ice closes connections also if they are idle, and reopens them transparently, so if a connection drops, it doesn't have to mean that the client or server crashed, or that access was denied.

    Have a look at Glacier in the Ice manual. Glacier is the Ice firewall service, which provides user-id/password checks, and also session management.
