Can a script be developed that causes the following: The user logs on to an Access database-- at the same time it logs the user into a server?

My dilemma.  I have a split Access 2007 database.  The backend of the database is on a server.  I've copied the front end on users' desktops.  But, use of the database is extremely slow. Obviously we do not want users in the server. The reason for my question:

Can a script(s) that includes the following be developed:
(1) Logs the user into the server and at the same time logs the user into the database... and after using the database
(2) Logs the user off the database and the server at the same time when the user exits the database.

In  short the user can't access nothing but the front-end of the database on the server.

The server OS is Windows Server Standard 2007.

Thanks in advance.

  Put a share on the server for each user hidden and then create a mapped drive in their login script to that share.

  Then have them access the FE on the server through the mapped drive.

  You really should explore that. It's either the way the DB was developed or the network.
