Restricted Access to Network

Hi,

I need some information on Restricted network access. We want to implement restricted access to network based on username/password and Date/time. Whenever a user starts his machine and tries to access the network he should be asked for username/password. Based on username the access should be restricted by date/time. For example if i try to login to the network and get authenticate, i should be allowed to access the network only on weekdays and from 9:00AM to 5:30PM.

Please suggest if this can be implemented

Re: Restricted Access to Network

I'm not sure what the exact network topology is or how users will access the network. If you are looking for a form of Authentication before users logged into NT you could do this with cisco Catalyst switches starting with the 2950's using 802.1x.

In order for a user to be able to pass traffic on the switch port the switch will query an AAA RADIUS or TACACS server for authentication/authorization parameters. If that passes then the user can pass traffic on the switch port, and log into the Domain.

You need NICs that will support 802.1x in order to do this.
