    Install limit login from Microsoft or one of the other possibly pay for solutions.

    Limit login is free.

    It can't be done I'm afraid within a GPO. In fact, Microsoft don't provide anything that I know of whch allows you to set this most basic feature on a network.

    They do however endorse a solution called 'Limit Login' which I have tried to implement in the past and failed to do. I am sure this was failure on my part - I did try it in a bit of a rush. So it's well worth looking at.

    I think there's been mention of a logon script and a crude text-file database of sorts that will logoff the user if a token exists (set by the logon script) elsewhere on the forum.

    I wrote one of those as a vbs logon script and while it did work you have to also have a mechanism of clearing the flag in the case of a crashed machine.
