Exclamation how can I limit time access with pam


I want to limit access time for a user so it can't login between friday 19:00 to Monday 05:00
I tried to use the file /etc/security/time.conf but I don' know exactly how to configure it;
I tied this:
*;*;Mohamed;!Mo0000-0500&!Fr1900-2400&!SaSu0000-2400
His dosn't work exactly
so I tried this
*;*;Mohamed;!Mo0000-0500|!Fr1900-2400|!SaSu0000-2400
And I thik it dosn't work so
Kan you explain to me if we must use | (or) or & (and)

thaks

This web site seems to do a good job of explaining the syntax. Hope it helps.

thanks for this link it's very good
but I don't know where is the problem :
if I write this
!Mo0000-0500&!Fr1900-2400
it works correctly (the user can't access on monday between 0000 and 0500 and have no access on friday between 1900 and 2400)

but if I add an other condition :
!Mo0000-0500&!Fr1900-2400&!SaSu0000-2400
it dosn't work

I don't know why more than two time ranges doesn't work. Perhaps you can split it into two entries. From that link:
Quote:
If there are entries that overlap, the least permissive (actually, the intersection of all entries) is used
