Hello All;
We have win2k3 server domain controller in line and several winxp machines.
My question is this:

Is it possible to set up a rule in Active Directory for a certain computer to
Have limited Internet Access, BUT have full network access during the down time?

The times need to be set as such:

Sunday - Thursday 6:00am - 10:00pm ALLOW
From 10:01pm - 5:59am No access.

Friday - Saturday 6:00am - 11:00pm
From 11:01pm - 5:59am No access.

Is this possible? (or) will I have to do something else in order to control this users access like, Break his hands :)  (It is my son, we are allowed to break hands aint we?)

Thanks all:
Carrzkiss

I believe some routers offer this feature.  AD you can block user logon, but if they are already logged on, I don't think it forces them out (don't recall).

ok.
I can check in on our router then.
To see if maybe possibly.
I have a cisco router in storage, that I prefer not bringing into the scene right now.
We are currently using a Linksys BEFSR41
Will check on it tomorrow.

Thanks Leew.

I think it was either belkin or netgear routers that I've seen with that feature - Cisco/Linksys MIGHT have it... but I'm not certain (I loath Linksys products).

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

The older Linksys like the BEFSR41
Is one of the better line of Routers that they have made.
The ones that came right after the one I have, like the v2
Really sucks.
But I have been right satisfied with this one, and I have been using it off and on since it was first put out on the market.

Cisco router's support this sort of thing with a time range based firewall rules.

I think the windows alternative is force everyone though a proxy server eg isa and set it up there.
In which case you will need to change the router to block access to the internet except from the isa proxy.

I have not got around to dealing with this issue. BUT this is considered an abandoned question.
So I am going to award you 2 the points and close this thing out.
I will re-visit this issue in the future.

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
