network privileges for 'localsystem' account

10 New Member
Is there any difference in the privileges of the 'localsystem' account under XP,2000 and 2003 server?
We are launching a browser from an INTERACTIVE windows service (running under 'localsystem' account),and make it navigate to a url.
The url in turns redirects to another page.
This navigation/redirection is allowed in 2000 and XP ;but fails in 2003.
Is this a result of difference in network privileges for localsystem account?

Absolutely, Windows 2003 server has the strictest internet browsing policy and for a good reason, you don't want to get unnecessary files of the net on your server. If you want to bypass the security I suggest you download and install firefox at get firefox

Best Luck, Cyber

Hi, Is it possible to create a network-drive at the SYSTEM-level? E.g.: map X: to \\server1\share so a windows service can reach X: without having to log on? I want a Windows .NET service to collect files from a UNIX-share (mapped to X:) that is exposed to windows using Hummingbird-software. Leo.

ok, so I kow that the local system accoutn can't get to a network share, and if you want to do that and not lose any of your other priveliges you need to run under a user name and password that is configured at installation. So now for the problem. How do I get around this ? I really would liek to be able to reduce the amount of steps that the user has to take to deploy my aplication, and I really don't want to send the user

I need to write a windows service, and the only way it can access a shared drive on a file server on the network is if the installer is put in "User" mode - "LocalService", "LocalSystem" and "NetworkService" don't work. i.e. it can't access the shared drive. But in "User" it can. But I don't want it in user mode, if possible. I would rather it be a service. Is there any way to do it?

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
