Work Hours Access Restrictions

Overview

Starting with version 9.60, Terminal Service Plus provides an easy to use feature to restrict the user connections to specific time ranges in a week.

This feature is great for small and medium size businesses and allows IT admins to set up quickly a time- and day-based connection restriction. Of course, if you have an Active Directory, you might want to set the work hours on it directly, instead of using this feature.

How to authorize users to connect only during their work hours

Open Terminal Service Plus AdminTool, click on the "Security" tab and then click on the "Work Hours Access Restrictions" icon.

The following window will be displayed:

To prevent a user from opening a session on the server outside his work hours, select the user on the left part of the window, then click on "Authorize only during these time ranges".

To authorize a given day, check the matching checkbox and enter the start and end time of the time range for that day, using the HH:MM format.

Terminal Service Plus requires a "24 hours" time, i.e. 8AM is 08:00 and 8PM is 20:00 (just add 12 to PM hours).
