No permission to open the Network and Dial-up Connections folder

We have a Windows 2000 SBS Server running Terminal Services. The Administrator is logged on at the console. The following message appears when double clicking on the Network and Dialup Connections applet in the Control Panel. "You do not have permission to open the Network and Dial-up Connections folder."
I suspect there may be a policy preventing / restricting TS users from using this applet but surely not the Administrator logged on at the Console. Is there a way to check / reset / remove all policies and or check permission to this windows component? Please advise.

Rather than checking the components check the administrator’s account. If you are using Administrator or have granted/delegated admin privileges to an Admin/User account make sure they are a “member of” not only the administrators group but the domain admins group as well as the enterprise admins group if you have an enterprise group.

Also check the Terminal Services Profile tab of the accounts to assure you have granted TS access to that account.

If it is a policy restricting access remove the GPO link in question or modify the “Apply GP” settings for the Domain Admins. You can find the “Apply GP” in the advances security | advanced | permissions – highlight Domain Admins – scroll down to “Apply GP”.

Good luck.
Let me know if it helps…

Tweaked GPO - with no immediate change??? Came back next morning and access all OK. Guess I was just impatient that Policy did not take effect imediately - Is this normal ? At the time I also logged off and then back on again with similar results. It seems as though the time out did some sychronization?

Yes, this is normal. You have to run secedit to force policy updates.
Thanks.
