Hello Experts,

Could someone please tell me if its possible to allow an AD user to login only from one specific IP address and if so, how this is done?

Thanks in advance.

I think it would be more easier to restrict access from a certain computer name, especially if you use DHCP in your network - this would be done very simple in the account settings from "Active directory users and computers" the "Account" tab has an button "Log on to" - there you can list the computer from where will have access.

The previous comment is absolutely correct.  If you would like to use an IP address you can assign a Static IP to the PC you want them to use, then add that IP address into AD.
