Auto-changing Workgroup

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?bWlja2FuZQ==?=, Oct 31, 2004.

  1. I have several users who are required to use a given workgroup name in order
    to connect to a service on our network. Unfortunately, these students are
    asked by their parents to use the home workgroup at home. Of ~300 users there
    are about 10% (30) who must change their networking (workgroup) name almost
    daily.

    I have a registry file to place on desktops to change computername for the
    next reboot; but nothing to share with them that can solve the workgroup
    dilemna.

    Does anyone out there have that magical answer - something that a keypress
    can accomplish that will change the workgroup name for the next reboot?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Cheers,

    ~mk

  3. As already stated - sorry ... it's late & I only read the word "networking"
    in the newsgroup name (the group previous and next are both Windows ...)

    ..... that's my excuse & I'm sticking to it.
