Allow access to current user's RAS connection properties

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


Determines whether users can view and change the properties of their private dial-up connections.

Private connections are those that are available only to one user. To create a private connection, on the Connection Availability page in the Network Connections wizard, click the Only for myself option.

This policy determines whether the Properties menu item is enabled, and thus, whether the Dial-up Connection Properties dialog box is available to users.

If you enable this policy, a Properties menu item appears when users right-click the icon representing a dial-up connection. Also, when users select the connection, Properties appears on the File menu.

If you disable this policy, the Properties menu items are disabled, and users cannot open the Dial-up Connection Properties dialog box.

This policy supersedes policies that remove or disable parts of the Dial-up Connection Properties dialog box, such as those that hide tabs, remove the check boxes for enabling or disabling components, or disable the Properties button for components that a connection uses. If you disable this policy, it overrides these subsidiary policies.
