Enable renaming of connections, if supported

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Network and Dial-up Connections

Description

Determines whether users can rename dial-up and local area connections.

If you enable this policy, the Rename option is enabled. Users can rename connections by clicking the icon representing a connection or by using the File menu.

If you disable this policy, the Rename option is disabled.

This policy is designed to be used with the Enable renaming of RAS connections belonging to the current user policy. When enabled (but not when disabled) the Enable renaming of connections, if supported policy takes precedence over the Enable renaming of RAS connections belonging to the current user policy.

The Enable renaming of connections, if supported policy permits users to rename all connections, including, but not limited to, their private dial-up connections. If the Enable renaming of connections, if supported policy is disabled and the Enable renaming of RAS connections belonging to the current user policy is enabled, users can rename only their private dial-up connections. However, if the Enable renaming of connections, if supported policy is enabled, then users can rename all connections, regardless of the setting of the Enable renaming of RAS connections belonging to the current user policy.
