To restrict a users logon hours we will use the net user command. These commands are used fromt the Command Prompt.

Below are some examples:

net user brendon /time:M-F,08:00-17:00

net user brendon /time:M-F,8am-5pm

net user jane /time:M,4am-5pm;T,1pm-3pm;W-F,8:00-17:00

net user matt /time:all (this one means this user can always log on)

Note:You can only restrict when a user can log on to the system. On a stand alone computer, there is no way, currently, to force a user to log off when their hours expire.
