    Restrict Login Times

    Hi

    I was wondering if anyone has come across this scenario before - and if so how they've overcome it?

    I'd like to restrict access to a whole computer room for any student login during Lunch time. Is this possible, and if so - how would you go about this?

    This of course is using the lovely RM CC4...

    Many thanks

    How about just locking the door? A lot more simple

    Use RM Tutor to Lock or Blank the PCs, stops the mouse from working.

    You can use AD to put time restrictions in place, but it's not location specific

    Definitely more simple - however one that the Teachers have decided should be an IT task - and I for one will not be sending any of my Technicians to lock \ unlock a door! ;-)

    The problem with AD time restrictions, is if you're already logged in, it doesn't work. It'll only stop new logins.

    The only other possible solution is to look at Userlock, or something along these lines.

    Funny you should say that, we have an IT room that is open plan. It doesn't have a wall to hang a door from!
