    Restricting Logons

    Right, what is the best way to do this?

    I want to be able to enforce seating plans in my classroom by either preventing users from logging in to the wrong machine or by logging them off. I could easily write a script to do this but that would require a lot of time and I was wondering if there was an easier way.

    vbs script is easiest quickest and dirtiest way

    dim foo = some user
    dim bar = some computer

    if user == foo and computername <> bar
    logout
    else don't logout

    Re: Restricting Logons

    That is very similar to the way I would do it, though I don't know vb that well. Is there an easy way in vb to get the name of the user on a remote machine, that way it could be controlled from my laptop and I don't need to worry about setting up timetables.
