Non-Admin Rights

I’ve been searching for a way to allow a non-admin on Windows XP to change the network settings (IP address,subnet,gateway,dns,etc)
Well I was search for a solution I found this blog posting about a nice little script that will make a user an admin, start a new process with admin rights, then remove the user from the admin group. Its using runas, so to be really usefull I need to find a way to script in the admin password (encrypted)

Also I still have not been able to find a way to have a non-admin user change network settings. If you found a way, please let me know.

Thanks,jb

  1. I found an answer that works for us. There is a local group called Network Configuration Operators.
