We are using SBS 2000 Server and Windows xp and Wincows 7 as client OS. Now , We have made a policy to block the users to change the lan connection properties.
Now , those end users are java developers , they need a administrator permission in their local machine to compile the programs in eclipse or other compiler. If i assign a administrator permission to a normal users , they will be able to change the ip address in network properties.
Is there a way to protect users to not able to change the lan card properties as well as allow those users to run their compilers as well.
