Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i have added the following line to /etc/security/time.conf file
then i add a entry in /etc/pam.d/login file
account required pam_time.so
But, now i login locally through Command line interface, it denied me. Well, But through GUI it allows me to login as winston. If i do rlogin or ssh from other clients that is also working. I want to restrict that user in all the way. How can i do this?
If you look in /etc/pam.d there's probably (should be) an sshd file to edit as well.
Not sure about X-win, but there should a a relevant file in there.
You'll also have to make sure that user is completely logged out. iirc, the GUI clones the first login and just copies it, so it might not notice the change.
Don't have a Linux system here with X-win to check.
i blocked the rlogin and ssh by made an entry in the /etc/security/time.conf file.
The entries are
and also in /etc/pam.d/sshd and rlogin file. Everything works fine except the local GUI. In GUI it allows me to log in. I think the crontab will do for GUI.
