If you want to tie your users to be using just their Pc, it can be done in the properties of the user account in AD Users and Computers. Go to properties -> Account _> Log Onto and give the ip address of the user's client machine which you want him/her to use.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Nothing native in windows/ad will do that.

You should give a look to a 3rd-party software solution named UserLock, that allows to:
- Restrict user access
- Limit concurrent logins
- Monitor logins in real-time
- Remotely lock and log off suspicious users
Unfortunately, it doesn't look too easy, as described here -

Looks like there is a tool required on all client computers before you can use this method. Anyway, it's all explained above, have a look and see what you think...

Oh, just in addition to that - I imagine it must be relatively easy to deploy this tool to clients using a log on script or similar... So it doesn't mean you have to trudge around to every desktop installing it... :)
