Parental Controls/Time Of Day access controls based on user accounts. RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi everyone,

    One feature that I would LOVE to see, is the ability to control the access to shares based on User profiles and time of day. While with Windows 7, you have the ability to set up Parental Controls to restrict access to the computer based on the time of day, I would like to see this as part of WHS.

    Here is the situation at our house. I have four Xboxes that are running XBMC and I have all of our media on the WHS. In the middle of the night, my seven year old daughter wakes up and figures that she has slept enough for that night and goes downstairs and turns on the XBox and TV and starts to watch her shows. If I could limit the access of the shares by users and TOD, this and any other devices that access the WHS over the network could be easily controled.

    I started a connect thing for this back for WHSv1, but there isn't any reason that they could add it WHSv2. Vote it up please!
