How to enable network properties in user account

By doonyakka ·
I'm sure there must be some WinXP Group Policy setting that allows a limited user to change the Network Connections settings, but I can't find it. Any ideas?

Thanks for your reply.

Actually, none of those GP settings enable user access to networking properties. The GP help text says the following:

"Note: Nonadministrators are already prohibited from accessing properties of components for a LAN connection, regardless of this setting."

However, I got around the problem by adding a specific limited user to the Network Configuration Operators group.

Problem solved!
