    Netgear SSL312 VPN

    Hello folks.

    I've just got a Netgear SSL312 VPN Concentrator. Unfortunately, to create a VPN tunnel a user needs administrator privileges on the machine.

    This is never going to happen, as I don't let my users do diddly squat in this area - no local admin or power users.

    I was wondering... does anyone know a group policy or registry kludge that would allow a normal user to create a network adaptor?

    Or perhaps I'll just put it back in the cupboard and forget all about it?

    Thanks.

    We used the RDP connector option (we also used VPN but dropped it as it was more complex than RDP) and created the user a limited account on the server if that would work for you.

    Surely there's a way to do what you ask too tho'.

    Irritatingly, this is true of most VPN tunnels - some even need admin privs to run.

    You may be able to add some semi-admin flavoured privs, butI never managed to come up with a happy solution

    Do you know which point it falls over at? I'm guessing the activeX client (or whatever browser you're using) is trying to create a virtual adaptor. I think there's GP to enable changes with network adaptors somewhere

    I cant say Ive had this problem with locked down laptops who use our SSL312, long shot but are you running the latest FW on the concentrator?
