I'm trying to proigram a time-based (not idle time) logout for some public systems - I don't know if its doable but what I'd like to do is run a scheduled task on login that would wait 30 minutes before calling a logout and prohibiting the currently logged in user from immediately logging in again.  To that end I'm trying to figure out how to mimic the GPO LM/Security/Deny Logon locally in order to place the user on the deny list.  

I'd like an explanation of what that security setting modifies (registry/SAM/?) becasue I'm fairly clueless and whether there is scripting or programmatic access to accomplish the same thing.

How long would you want the user to not be able to login?

I don't know exactly - probably between 30 minutes and an hour...

Most likely I'd use "shutdown.exe -l -f" to accomplish the logoff.
For the user I'd use "net user username /diable" to make it so that user cannot log in.
Then either reenable account manually, or schedule "net user username /enable"

Well... there's no net user username /disable command, although there is a "net user username /active:{yes:no}".  Will this disable the user's domain account altogether though?  I just need them not to be able to logon to that particular system until someone else has logged on (at which time I will reenable the previous user's ability to logon locally...)  The idea is that we make sure no person is on any one system for longer than x minutes - this shouldn't stop them from being able to go to another system hoever (if other systems are available...)

LOL oops, yes it is /active for net user, and yes it will disable the domain account completely.

If you have the Windows 2000 Resource Kit use ntrights.exe.

The following are the available security priveleges for this tool (ntrights.exe) ...  I was hoping to see something signifying local logon...  So is the security file which contains the local logon prohibnitions secedit.sdb?  SHould I be trying to moidify this directly?  

 SeCreateTokenPrivilege
 SeAssignPrimaryTokenPrivilege
 SeLockMemoryPrivilege
 SeIncreaseQuotaPrivilege
 SeUnsolicitedInputPrivilege
 SeMachineAccountPrivilege
 SeTcbPrivilege
 SeSecurityPrivilege

Cool Kennenniah - the list of available rights doesn't mention the SeDenyInteractiveLogonRight but its still available.

Thanks
