IMO this is not possible. You can not place restrictions on the IPC
protocol, and I fail to see why you disallow IPC and force them to use
TCPIP. Doing so, they still can do anything they want.
Given the advantages of IPC over TCPIP, I would rather block them from
using the TCPIP protocol when connected locally.
Why don't just disable the telnet protocol?
