I have a network of Win2K clients on a Win NT 4.0 domain. I have one PC that I would like to allow only one user to access and no one else, but still allow them to use other PC's.
Right now everyone can login withtheir username on any PC. but one Ionly want one person to be able to login, can/how can I do this.

HI
since you say Win2K clients then use the adminstartor to delete all users from that PC, but the specific user you want to login on to it and change the adminstartor password for that specific PC which other users may have access to it.


Goodluck

You might consider limiting user/group logon time for all users/groups, except the person you want. e.g. all users, except XXX can logon between 1:00 am and 1:01 am. See Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - Q318714.

Hi,
On the win2k box go to the run box and type
gpedit.msc

This will open up the group policy object for that machine. browse to computer \ windows settings \ security settings \ local policies \ user rights assignment and edit the 'log on locally right' - add your user, and I suggest the admins too, and then remove any other entries. This will stop anyone else logging on.....

on that winNT server go to user manager then select each account open it and on the logon to buttom indicate the station you interest to assign to that user , then go to any W2K station and change the administrator password so they will not attemp try nothing else then. In your pc change the administrator password for security then stop the login service and then lock it as your account if you are admin or with the administrator account. good lock...
