Determines whether users can connect and disconnect LAN connections.
A value of 0 disables the Connect and Disconnect buttons. Also, double-clicking the icon representing the connection has no effect.
This entry stores the setting of the Enable connecting and disconnecting a LAN connection Group Policy. Group Policy adds this entry to the registry with a value of 1 when you enable the policy. If you disable the policy, Group Policy sets the value to 0. If you disable the policy, Group Policy sets the value to 0. If you set the policy to Not configured, Group Policy deletes the entry from the registry and the system behaves as though the value is 1.
|0||The policy is disabled. Users cannot connect or disconnect LAN connections.|
|1 (or not in registry)||The policy is enabled or not configured. Users can connect and disconnect LAN connections.|
To change the value of this entry, use Group Policy. This entry corresponds to the Enable connecting and disconnecting a LAN connection policy (User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Network and Dial-up Connections).
Even when the value of this entry is 0, 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 (NC_Statistics).
For detailed information about particular Group Policy settings, see the Group Policy Reference (Gp.chm) on the Windows 2000 Resource Kit companion CD.
