How to restrict users logon hours using netuser


You can easily restrict your users from logging in to your system, or allowing the users to login only for specific hours. To restrict a user logon hours, use the net user commands. These commands are used from the Command Prompt. (Start – RUN – and type cmd)

Below are some examples:
1 – net user mishal /time:M-F,08:00-17:00

2 – net user micheal /time:M-F,8am-5pm

3 -net user realhackers /time:M,4am-5pm;T,1pm-3pm;W-F,8:00-17:00

4 – net user chris /time:all (this one means this user can always log on)

Note:You can only restrict when a user can log on to the system. On a stand alone computer, there is no way to force a user to log off when their hours expire, without a third party script or software.
