I am running IPCOP ver.1.4.6.How do I set time constraints? I have about 15 users and I want them to browse at different times. For example:grop A can have access to internet from 8am to 10am only and maybe group B can have access from 4pm to 5pm.

I'm going to assume each user is on a seperate PC & there at the least all connected through a router or switch, if so why not just set access for each PC via the router or switch for each PC.

IPCop is running linux.
Linux netfilter (iptables) has a module that can
match time. You might have to resolve to run a
special script during boot to add these time
contrained rules.
This is an IP based solution,

Another solution would be to use squid and build
a squid acl and authorisation for users and
limit this authorisation to a certain time (ldap
or radius can help here) .

Kind regards,

You are likely more responses in a linux specific site. One well know one is "" which has got a lot of active forums and users.

Also, you could try itself.
