Vista Offline files 'On Slow Networks Automatically work offline' greyed out
Posted on 2008-11-19
I want to prevent Offline Files from switching to Online when a remote user connects to the LAN via VPN. It is currently doing this, causing the system to run very slowly.
The Offline Files settings has a 'Network' tab, on which there is a checkbox entitled
"On slow connections, automatically work offline"
but it is greyed out,. I thought it might be a UAC issue, but there seems no way to start the Offline Files applet with elevated permissions. Can anyone tell me why I cannot make the setting?
