    Restricted Login Hours

    I found this of interest. The source is Microsoft TechNet.....


    Subject: Setting Restricted Login Hours on XP Standalone System

    I recently had to contact Microsoft Tech Support for assistance on this so I wanted to post the article on the web incase someone else had this same issue.

    Situation: You want to restrict the logon days / times of a user account in XP and are a standalone machine.

    Reason: You may wish to restrict teens who arrive home before adult supervision from accessing your broadband always on connection, limit employees to only work hours access etc..

    Steps:

    To Set restrictions:

    Click Start
    Click Run
    Type cmd in the run box and press enter.
    The following is a sample of what you would type:
    net user testuser /times:M-F,5pm-9pm; Sa,6am-9pm;Su,6am-9pm

    Where testuser is the local account name.

    To Remove Restrictions:

    Click Start
    Click Run
    Type cmd in the run box and press enter.
    The following is a sample of what you would type:
    net user testuser /times:all

    Where testuser is the local account name.

    I hope someone else finds this useful as I did.
