    Hello all, we have a single server that we are trying to get TeamSpeak 3 up and running on and are having a slight issue. We were forced to disable Fork Bomb protection as the TeamSpeak 3 Server application loads several virtual process and will fail to start if the ulimit (-u) is set to anything below 100. Changing the ulimit for max processes is not an option when Fork Bomb protection is enabled.
    So, is there any way to disable fork bomb protection for a single user, or at least increase the number of process allowed to run for that user?
    I've tried looking into this a while back, but gave up after a few days of searching and just left fork bomb protection disabled and this has become an unacceptable solution as we are gaining new accounts and more users have access to the shell.
    Thanks for your help!
