I'd like to know what books/topics, tutorials and websites I need to know in order to write an application which enables an administrator to lockunlock a certain workstation on a network.
It isn't really an assignment, more like a project, and I don't expect nor want anyone to make the program for me, just to be pointed in the right direction. Please. And if anyone thinks it's easier/more efficient to write it in another language, let me know.
This program, when completed, will probably be given to a friend of mine who owns an Internet Cafe`, if that helps.
