How to restrict users logon hours using netuser

1

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.
