Network Connection Targeting

Updated: September 29, 2014

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

A Network Connection targeting item allows a preference item to be applied to users only if a network connection of the type specified in the targeting item is connected. If Is Not is selected, it allows the preference item to be applied only if no network connection of the type specified in the targeting item is connected.

noteNote
Network Connection targeting items detect whether a type of network connection exists, not whether the user is logged on through a connection of that type.

 

Connection type

The network connection type that the targeting item detects:

  • Any (includes only those network connection types listed below)

  • Telephone modem accessed through a COM port

  • ISDN card with corresponding NDISWAN driver installed

  • X.25 card with corresponding NDISWAN driver installed

  • Virtual Private Network (VPN)

  • Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)

  • Frame Relay

  • Sonet

  • Switched 56K access

  • Infrared Data Association (IrDA) device

  • Serial Port direct connection

  • Parallel Port direct connection

  • Generic

  • Packet Assembler/Disassembler

  • PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE)

If Any is selected, the targeting item allows a preference item to be applied to users only if a network connection of at least one of the types in the Connection type list is connected. If Is Not is also selected, it allows the preference item to be applied only if no network connections of any of the connection types listed above are connected.

Additional considerations

  • Network Connection targeting is available only for preference items under User Configuration .

  • To reposition a targeting item within the list of targeting items that you have applied to a preference item, either drag the targeting item to a new position, or select the targeting item and then click the Move Up arrow or Move Down arrow.

  • Preference items are available only in domain-based GPOs.
