Re: Removing the NIC cable = EoP?

Two things.

How is the user able to get the internet while the network cable is unplugged?  Secondly, it is the proxy server in 99% 
of cases which restricts which websites the user can/cannot visit, not the local policies.

This whole subject of pulling out the network cable giving admin is gay.

Have a lovely day.

I doubt it will work on any windows OS. If a user is logged in as a
user who dont have admin rights then unplugging network cable does not
give him admin.

AFAICT this is not about gaining admin rights (which one would if the
machine is a non-NT based Windows) but rather about gaining the right to
surf whatever website one wants. This can indeed be achieved by not
loading the group policies. (If I'm not mistaken here. I'm a BSD kernel
hacker, not a Windows supporter...)
