How to limit the time someone can spend on an account


I was wondering how to allow someone to use a user account for two hours a day. After this time, it will log them out, and not allow them to sign back in until the next day. How can I do this?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your answer. Is it possible to use porttime to allow the user to sign on at any time of the day, but only allow the session to last for two hours before terminating it?
