Can anyone tell me how to remove the password on the TCP/IP extension on an imac, we have a lab of 24 where students have set-up a password on some of the imacs. The reason I need to do this is so all imacs recieve the ip from our dhcp server.

Thanks in advance
John

Open the TCP/IP control panel. Go to Edit>User Mode and click the "Basic" button. You WILL have to know the password the students used to do this. You MAY be able to delete the TCP/IP prefs to get around the password but i havent tried that.

Hi
thanks for answering, but the problem is we don't know what they have put in. I think I have sussed it by deleting the preference for tcp/ip but I want some confirmation before I do this.

Tossing the prefs is my best guess for eliminating the password. The worst thatll happen if you toss the prefs is that you lose your settings (duh). Cant hurt to give it a shot.

try starting extension off, then MOVE the IP prefs out, restart and see what happens. If nothing the do the reverse. Steve
