SharePoint and Active Directory Authentication

I have SharePoint sites that are being accessed by 'the public' (vendors, consultants, etc) that require an account in AD for authentication. Does anyone have a suggestion how I set the accounts so if they are on-site they cannot login to the network?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We have a simiar setup. All of these users are set up in a separate OU. We have very specific security groups that these users are members of – none of which have rights to login to any servers inside the network. You have to assign a new Primary Group to these “extranet” users and ensure they are not in the group Everyone, Domain Users, etc. These users are also not part of the VPN security groups, hence they cannot ever authenticate that way either.

    You could also list the sharepoint server/servers in the "logon to" button located in the account tab of their AD accounts.
