We have about 30 clients networked and working in a Workgroup. They use files shared on a Server (running Win Server 2008 ). they should access the shared files 24/7 .
Also users connect to internet as they turn on their pcs(without any additional VPN connections or something like that). They connect to an Linksys ADSL Router, either via Wi-Fi adapter or using a usual cable adapter. (File Sharing Server is using the ADSL router to connect to internet too)
Now we want to restrict access of some of users to a dedicated amount of time in month or week.(for example 14hours/week) how can we get this done ? should we create VPN connections ? If Yes what are procedures ? should we change the network type to a Domain ? if yes what are other steps ?
By the way , it's okay for us to use other roles of the File Sharing Server (described latter in this text).
any ideas and assistance is appreciated.
