Restrict User Login from 1 PC to domain/pc

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.configuration_manage (More info?)

We have one PC running XP Pro that we only want 2 users to be able to log
onto. The problem is that we're on a NT domain.
Is there a way to restrict who can log on thru a specific machine on NT or
how do I restrict access on XP...

    Hi

    Remove the "<your domain>\Domain Users" from all local groups
    on the computer (it is default in the "Users" group).

    Then add the domain accounts of the 2 users you want to be able
    to log on in one of the local groups ("Users", "Power Users,
    or "Administrators").

    Be sure that any local user account (e.g. Administrator) have
    a password that is not publicly known.


    Now only the 2 domain users should be able to logon to the computer
    (in addition to all that are members of the "Domain Admins" group
    in your domain).
