I am a network admin for a high school.  We have a Cisco Academy class and the students need to be able to change there IP address to access there local switches and routers.  We would like to give the students the ability to change there IP address, however we do not want them to have administrative privileges.

We are running W2K SP3 Pro on the desktop & server with Active Directory.

Should we create a user account for this task on the network or should we create a local user account?  Once the account is created, what steps should we take to do the above?  Thanks for your assistance.

I would suggest an AD account, not a local account...also, group policy has items in it to configure this sort of thing...can't think of the exact name of the items.

Get back to me if you can't find the setting items

If I didn't lose my memory

i think u need to add the domain user/local user to this security setting:

"Acts as part of the operating system" in the local security settings --> user Rights Assignment
