For on-demand connections, you can specify time limits for dial-out or dial-in hours.

Configure dial-out hours on the demand-dial interface of a calling router to block outgoing connections at specific times of the day or week (such as at night or on weekends).

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

  1. On the calling router, open the Routing and Remote Access MMC snap-in.

  2. In the console tree, expand the router name, and then click Network Interfaces.

  3. In the details pane, right-click the demand-dial interface you want to configure, and then click Dial-out Hours.

  4. In the Dial-out Hours dialog box, select the appropriate day and time boxes to either permit or deny dial-out access, click either Permitted or Denied, and then click OK.

Configure dial-in hours on the answering router to specify when the calling router can access the answering router.

For information about how to use remote access network policies to configure dial-in hours on an answering router to block incoming connections at specific times of the day or week (such as at night or on weekends), see “Network Policy Conditions Properties” in Network Policy Server (NPS) Help.
