Logging into windows with an account on another computer

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, my school has a setup where no matter what computer is being used, (over 500 in total) it can always log on to the same account.
For example, my user account at school is called "5497", and i can log onto windows where ever i am as long as i am using a computer that belongs to the school.

How are they doing this?

I want this setup for my home so i have more control over what programs users are allowed to use and what websites they may log on to.

Thanks in advance for the replys

It's generally useful for something such as AAA and permissions as far as network resources go (windows file server, etc). If you want to control access to the WAN you'd generally have to use another implementation such as OpenDNS of which you can blacklist certain URL's, or a proxy with an access list, etc.

Install windows server 2008, Install Active Directory and then point your DNS to your windows server machine then add your users to the server.

Its pretty much as simple as that.

As for the web filter, you can use Squid HTTP proxy with dansguardian plugin, or censornet.

its hard to get everything right though, depending on wether roaming profiles or not, where settings are the same for a certain user no matter where they log in, would need to install Active directory and DNS services on the server which you would also need then setting up a domain and all, alot of hassle for a home network!

Some routers let you set up what websites you want to block or words you want to block access too! whatever you do good luck!
