Restricting Access to Network Properties

The Network property sheet is available via the Network icon in the Control Panel. Using the System Policy Editor, you can restrict access to this property Sheet. You'll find the option on the Policies property page of the Local User Properties property sheet under the Windows 98 System\Control Panet\Network option.

Network options are placed as values in the Registry in the following key:

HKEY CURRENT USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Policies\Network

A value set to 0x00000001 disables access; deleting the value or setting it to 0 enables access.
