WLAN and IBM Access Connections

Discussion in 'IBM Thinkpad' started by Robert Sander, May 29, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    has anybody managed to connect to a wireless LAN with Access
    Connections under an account with User privileges? I've configured a
    profile under the Administrator account. All works fine. I can connect
    and disconnect with this profile. But when I logon with my normal work
    account, which is only a member of the Users group, then I cannot
    establish a connection.

    What's wrong? Thanks for any suggestion.

    Check user rights?? What does that mean?? I have this same issue. You
    can not configure or add profiles if you only have "User" rights. I
    asked IBM ESS and they suggested I give all my users Admin rights. I
    asked if they had a fix or work around and they say that it works this
    way by design. I want to use Access Connections and let users create
    profiles. But not at the expense of granting them Admin rights
