Enable connecting and disconnecting a RAS connection

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


Determines whether users can connect and disconnect dial-up connections.

If you enable this policy, the Connect and Disconnect options for dial-up connections are available to users in the group. Users can connect or disconnect a dial-up connection by double-clicking the icon representing the connection, by right-clicking it, or by using the File menu.

If you disable this policy, then double-clicking the icon has no effect, and the Connect and Disconnect menu items are disabled.

Note Image Note

Users can still connect and disconnect from the Status page for a connection. To prevent users from displaying the Status page, disable the Enable status statistics for an active connection policy.
