Can anybody tell me what's the impact of disabling the netman service in a domain member Windows Server 2003 ?
I only know that the net man manages network connections but nothing more.

Thanks

Abdellah

I personally would run The Security Configuration Wizard to lock down unnecessary windows services.

It controls the network and your ability to connect to the internet via Dial-Up. I believe if you disable it the connections will no longer appear in the Network Connections folder. I think if you can still connect normally on a LAN connection.
