Hello All

We have a few machines dotted around that are connected to our network, some of which will only connect to our mail server after I have repaired the network connection. Now the users who use the machine do not have admin rights, and the ability to repair the network is out of the question.

I know I can repair it from the command line, but is there a way I can create a script, run it automatically on start-up and with admin rights to do this task for me?

We will be moving over to Ubuntu soon, but until then I have several machines that constantly need their network connections repairing, and it is causing a hassle for the users.


Many Thanks,
Ben

IS this for a business?
Do you have a IT department? If so they will be the ones to have fix the problem.
GeeksToGo is a free tech support but if you have a IT dept then you would need to have them look at it.

Hi rshaffer,

Yes this is a small business, I am one of the web developers here, therefore I am the IT department (along with another colleague, who is off for the weekend). I have asked the question because I lack knowledge in this particular area, and the usual Google search hasn't returned what I wanted, plus, nothing like the advice from someone that may be in my situation.

I won't hold it against you if you decide to not answer the question.
