Specify up to 8 computers a user can logon with.

In a domain network, you can specify which computers (up to 8) users are allowed to login from using the net user commands at the Command Prompt. This can help increase security and overall increased control of the network. Here’s an example:

net user username password /workstations:computername

To specify multiple workstations, separate them with a comma. If you don’t list any computer names, or just use an asterisk (*), users can log on from any computer.
