Managing User Accounts

User accounts are the backbone of network security administration. Through the use of user accounts, you can determine who can access your network, as well as what network resources each user can and cannot access. You can restrict access to the network to just specific computers or to certain hours of the day. In addition, you can lock out users who no longer need to access your network.

This tutorial is simply to introduce you to the concepts of user account management, so you know what you can and can't do, regardless of which network operating system you use.
