pam_ldap also supports the 'host' and "authorizedService" attributes, if you 
rather want to do per-user per-server authorization. Please see the nss_ldap 
documentation regarding the pam_check_host_attr and pam_check_service_attr 

(filtering users out at the nss level may be a bit drastic, as file ownerships 
might not be resolved correctly etc. Also, since pam configuration can be 
changed per-application, it is more flexible)

I believe Samba supports a similar means to the pam_ldap host attribute, 
namely storing the "allowed workstations". This can be modified using the "User 
manager for domains" tool from a Windows PC, and I believe this ends up 
modifying the sambaMungedDial attribute.

This will only work if you have a samba domain controller, and users log in to 
the domain. Further discussion of the samba and windows-specific aspects really 
belongs on the samba lists.
