Yup I agree with the other guys u should put those linux machines in a DMZ and separate it from the rest of the network 
with a firewall. 

Also you should not give your clients full administrative access, create user ids for them so you can audit and control 
their movements.

Hope this helps.

 We have 2 Linux machines (CentOS) which are accessed from outside by one of our clients. The rest of our network is 
Windows machines.
 We do not use domains, for now. (small network)

 What is the best way to make those clients access only the machines they need to work and no other computer on the 

 They have administrator rights on the Linux machines.

Thanks in advance,
