Location-based security policies

2009-11-30, 17:35 PM

I'm using my Thinkpad both at work and at home. For security reasons I set the system to promt for password after screensaver (as it appeares to be the easiest way to automatically lock the computer). In office it's OK, but rather annoying and useless when I'm at home.

So I wonder whether there is a method to switch it off while in trusted environement and back on in every other. Maybe AccessConnection could handle it?

Sorry, not in the scope of Access Connections.


It's an interesting question, but short of creating two users (one for work, the other for home), I can;t think of a way to do it.

If you can change the settings via a script (or maybe a 3rd party product), you could update your AC profile to launch the script/program to either set or unset the configuration.


For example, I use a script (well, plain old batch file actually) to map network drives when a certain work profile is launched. There must be a way to set screen saver policy via a windows shell script (WSH)...
