can one user have more than one connection to a gateway?

we have a PA-850 with one gateway that is configured for user VPN access.

It has been asked if users are able to have multiple connections to the gateway at once, and, if so, how to disable this feature.

One user can have multiple devices associated to the same gateway by default without any issue at all. If you want to limit this default behavior, you need to use a script to monitor sessions and to logout users who have multiple sessions active at the same time. An example script by @Remo can be found HERE that you can use as a baseline and customize to fit your needs and work within your environment.
