Block Certain Client Login (special)

I admin a Ethernet.

Windows 2000 Server Named: Srv  IP:;
There are two Clients:
Client A (named CA): IP:
Client B (named CB): IP:
Both CA & CB are running Windows98.

Now, here comes the problem:
Srv has an account (named stu1) which can be use on CA or CB to login Srv. Now, I want stu1 can only be used on CA, not CB.
In the normal solution, I can limit stu1 to be used on CA only. But in this case, users might change the name of Client B to CA or change CB's IP to

As far as I know,I could not solve the problem in Windows2000 server. Are there any solutions(using Windows 2000 and some Firewall) available to solve the problem?

Thanks for your help!

As I understood, you want to prevent the user change something in Windows 98 ?

Because Windows 2000 Group Policy is not supported Windows 98, now you can download the software called "Power Toys" (Tweak UI), which can restrict the user to edit somehting like as "Name of PC" (Block the Control Panel), "IP" (Block Network neighbourhood) etc.

I'am thinking you only have the two computers but this is not probably the case. Poledit can be implemented over a network for multiple users saving time having to make changes on every client on the network. Tkae a look at the following:


Hope this helps
